Speaking In

Find that Charity: a tool to help find charities and improve charity data

360Giving helps funders publish open data about their grants by publishing it in the 360Giving Data Standard. Their vision is for grantmaking in the UK to be more informed, effective and strategic. 'Find that Charity', developed by David Kane and supported by 360Giving, is a tool for finding data about non-profit organisations.

David will take us through some of the challenges in developing such a tool when the data has been published inconsistently, as well as the benefits of the tool for funders and recipients.
