Our portfolio

We believe in the potential of open data. With better information, funders can be more effective and strategic decision-makers. We also believe that being transparent helps us to be accountable.

On average, our active portfolio contains over 900 grants. We have published all our grants and social investments made since 2008 on 360Giving, an initiative that aims to help UK funders publish their data in an open and standard format online. By publishing our data in an open format through 360Giving, it can be shared and compared more easily.

You can also find a full list of our funding each year in our annual reports.

About 360Giving

360Giving provides support for funders to publish their grants data openly, to understand their data, and to use the data to create online tools that make grant-making more effective.

We grant-fund 360Giving because we think the data it collates can form the basis of new tools that everyone - those seeking funding as well as those looking to make grants and investments - can use to understand and improve giving in the UK.
