How to use the 360Giving Data Quality Tool

Upload, paste or provide a link to data using the 360Giving Data Standard format, and this application will check whether it is valid 360Giving data, and provide feedback so that you can check for errors and see ways to improve its quality.

The tool will convert between JSON, Excel and CSV formats, allowing you to download the original file, and the converted versions.

This tool will:

Check your data is valid.

The term ‘valid‘ means the data includes the 10 core fields and the information has all the correct data formatting that is required by 360Giving Data Standard. When it passes these checks, you will know that it is formatted for use alongside other valid 360Giving data and can be included in 360Giving tools, such as GrantNav and 360Insights.

It will not:

Check your data is accurate.

Check the data against your own open data policy.

This means there may be further checks you need to carry out to make sure the information is accurate, and that the data does not include information that is unsuitable for publishing as open data. Read more about what to consider when publishing open grants data.
