Hello grantmakers and seekers...
Happy new year!
Our challenge for 2018? More insight, greater innovation and better efficiency in UK grantmaking. If we work together these goals are totally achievable and here I set out how. We have already covered a lot of ground towards these goals and 2017 was a milestone year, with two government departments publishing to the 360Giving Standard for the first time (as well as releasing £100bn of data on a new internal register). And we continue apace. In the last three months the value of open grants data published by UK funders increased by a whopping 50% to more than £17bn. Meet our new publishers below and find out why they are opening up their data and building the bigger picture of UK grantmaking. Also, it’s not too late to pose a question for us to solve as part of our Challenge Fund.
We look forward to working with you and making 2018 the year we see more data, more use and more answers to the big questions facing the sector.
