Open Data

County Durham Community Foundation is committed to transparency and we work with 360Giving to publish information about our grants.

Using the 360Giving data standard, our awarded grants to groups can be viewed as Excel spreadsheets: COVID-19 Emergency grants here

April 2019 and March 2020

April 2016 and March 2019 here

Between 1st April 2016 and 31st March 2019 we have also awarded 1,265 grants to individuals totalling £2,168,310. These grants range from small grants supporting individuals in hardship to grants supporting individuals into apprenticeships.

We believe that with better information, grant makers can be more effective and strategic decision makers. 360Giving provides support for grant makers 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.
