Celebrating Open Data Day

March 2, 2018 9:21 am Published by

Saturday 3rd March is Open Data Day. The Dulverton Trust is pleased to be one of a number of funders in the grantmaking sector to share details of our grantmaking using the open data standard developed by 360Giving. By sharing this grants data openly, we hope to make it easier to find and compare grants made across the UK. This means charities and fundraisers can access information about who might fund them and grantmakers can make more informed decisions.

We first started publishing in 2015 with ten-years of grants data, and continue to publish three times per year. You can find our grants data on our website here as a spreadsheet. It can also be seen alongside other funders that are sharing their data openly on platforms such as GrantNav and Beehive.
