Open Data

We are committed to giving people the information they need about our grant funding.

For this reason we support Open Data, which is data that is:

  • published proactively
  • provided in machine-readable formats (such as csv)
  • provided for re-use

 We adhere to the following principles in providing our data:

  • timely publication – we will release and update our data on an annual basis
  • we provide disaggregated data
  • we use common standards by working with the 360Giving initiative to also publish our grant data through GrantNav
  • respect privacy – only non-personal data is published
