How to check your data

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.

How to submit your data

Once 360Giving data has been published by an organisation, the file must be added to the 360Giving Data Registry in order to get the data to appear in 360Giving’s tools such as GrantNav and 360Insights.

Publishers of 360Giving data can add their valid 360Giving data files to the Data Registry using the 360Giving data file submission form.

The submission form allows users to:

  • Update an existing Data Registry entry with an updated version of a file
  • Add an entry for a new file

Only publishers with an authorised website domain can use this submission process.

Authorised domains

By default, the website domain used by existing publishers to host their 360Giving data files will be authorised, unless the publisher has opted out of using the 360Giving data file submission process.

Organisations that publish 360Giving data for the first time can also use the 360Giving data file submission process once they have registered their website domain with 360Giving.

To register to your website domain prior to publishing for the first time please contact 360Giving Helpdesk via support@threesixtygiving.org.

Which domains are not authorised?

Data files published on multi-user hosting platforms like open data repositories, or file sharing services like, Google Sheets or Dropbox, cannot be authorised for use with the 360Giving data file submission process. Files published in this way can be added to the 360Giving Data Registry by emailing 360Giving Helpdesk via support@threesixtygiving.org.
