Data Capturing Grants for Trusts & Foundations May 2020

It’s more important than ever that funders are capturing and logging their grant making in an organised and systematic way. Many Yorkshire trusts and foundations will only log their grant-making for internal use, but we are all being encouraged to be more open with our data and log it in a way which could potentially be shared externally. This could be for research such as the Yorkshire & Humber Funding Ecology project, to add to the 360Giving portal, or as the Covid-19 crisis continues and moves into subsequent stages, it will be incredibly useful to map who is giving where, to what and how much.

Below are the column headers which 360Giving suggests for a simple trust or foundation grant database. We hope you will find these useful if you are looking to update or develop your data capturing. And if you do want to consider making your data available on 360Giving visit and they will provide free support to help you get your database set up.

Publishing your grants data in the 360Giving Data Standard will:

• help your organisation understand itself better
• sends a positive message to your grantees and fellow funders
• means you are doing your bit to help make grant-making in the UK more informed, effective and strategic
• saves time and money for the sector
• gives us a fuller picture of grant-making in the UK
• helps bring better outcomes for recipients

The local appeals and NET appeal are complementary. Having both a national and a local (to a specific area) appeal means that donors can choose the most appropriate approach for their donation. In essence, national corporates and funders tend to use the NET appeal to channel their support, whereas local individuals, trusts and businesses will tend to prefer to use the local appeal. Each Community Foundation will use all the funds at its disposal (from existing donors, their own appeals and NET) to make awards to local groups.
