Launch of New UK Grantmaking Platform

360 Giving launch a new interactive platform, with the support of Pears Foundation, to provide an overview of grantmaking in the UK.

25th June 2024

Pears Foundation have been proud supporters of the field of grantmaking research including, since its launch in 2008, the Foundation Giving Trends series.  We’re delighted that this work has been developed, with the data skills of 360 Giving, to create a new UK Grantmaking Platform which is launched today.

The new UK Grantmaking Platform will provide a one-stop shop for grantmaking insight, created by a unique collaboration between 360 Giving, the Association of Charitable Foundation, the Association of Charitable Organisations, UK Community Foundations and London Funders.  The interactive site will showcase data and insights on over £20bn of grants from over 13,000 UK grantmakers across all sectors.

Building on the work of Foundation Giving Trends, new data will address previous gaps, such as community foundation giving and organisations making grants to individuals, as well as adding important context and beginning to explore geographical questions.  We very much look forward to continuing to support and develop this product in future years.
