Our data

At the Community Foundations one of our values is to be accountable. As part of this commitment, we aim to be open and transparent with our grant making.

Viewing our grants

Sharing our data helps us to demonstrate our belief in the importance of giving and philanthropy by backing the brilliant work of local charities, championing disadvantaged people and less well supported causes.


If you want a list of our grants, you can find PDF lists on our resources page. Just select the ‘Grants Data’ filter and select the files titled ‘Grants Awarded’ followed by the year you want to look at.

Our grants on 360Giving

Since 2015 we have gone further as part of a community of funders who are openly sharing their grants data with 360Giving. We publish our grants using 360Giving’s Data Standard, which means the information on who, where and what we fund is shared in a way that anyone can access and use for free.


You can download the raw data as excel spreadsheets from our resources page and selecting the ‘Grants Data’ filter. You can also explore our grants data in 360Giving’s search engine for grants, GrantNav. Our grants are all here or you can look for other funders or other organisations by using the search box.


You can also see a visual overview of our grants through our page on 360Insights. 360Insights allows you to quickly see summary information about our grants, such as the number of grants and recipients, key visualisations including the distribution by amount awarded, award date and recipient type, as well as a map of grant recipient locations.


Publishing information about our grants in an open format on our own website, and through 360 Giving, means it can be shared and compared more easily. We hope this information will help both funders and people looking for funding.
