Hello grantmakers and seekers...
Welcome to our first 360Giving newsletter. I am Rachel Rank, CEO of 360Giving, which is supporting UK grantmakers to share information about who, where and what they fund to an open data standard to build the big picture of grantmaking in the UK. Check for yourself where grants are going with our brilliant GrantNav search tool.
We believe good data that can be easily shared and compared is the future of informed, effective and strategic grantmaking. I offer more reasons why open data is the way forward in my blog ‘The need for good data, not just more data’.
I also recently chatted to Andrew Means at Markets for Good about data infrastructure and why data standards matter. You can listen to our conversation here.
Below you will find lots of news and views on open data and our award-winning work with the sector, as well as news of not-to-be missed events and workshops.
We hope you find this first newsletter interesting and useful. Please do send us feedback and pass this newsletter on to colleagues. They can join our mailing list, find guidance on how to publish their data and contact me by emailing email@example.com.
