Hello grantmakers and seekers...
Over the last few months 360Giving has grown apace. As you will read below, we have five new publishers, including some government grantmaking data for the first time; we have a new member of staff - welcome Mor, our new Data Labs and Learning manager; the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation has secured our future for the next three years with a generous (and eponymous!) £360,000 grant - thanks indeed; and to top it all off we have been recognised as a ‘champion of digital transformation’ by the global Digital Leaders initiative who have named us as one of their 10 Digital Charities of the Year in their 2017 DL100 list.
I know there is much canvassing for votes at the moment, but can I ask for your support in helping us become their number one 'Digital Charity of the Year’ by taking a moment to vote for us here.
It has been good to meet with many of you at recent events including the NCVO conference, the Greater Manchester pilot workshops and at our first, very lively, Data Surgery. Find out the date of our next Data Surgery in our events listing below. And finally to say to funders, whichever type of grants management system you are using - whether Salesforce, GIFTS, Benefactor, Flexigrant or any other - we can work with you to publish easily. Get in touch and we’ll help you on to the open data road!
