We are Transforming Giving

Giving is Great is an initiative by the EQ Foundation (registered UK charity 1161209)
helping donors find the most impactful charities and for them to identify potential grant makers.
Our database incorporates almost 200,000 registered charities.

Donors: decide which charities to support based on data, such as:

  • evidence of impact
  • support from professional grant makers
  • rate of growth

Grant makers: analyse the mix of your grants, check for overlaps

Charities: see how your rivals are being funded

An incredibly useful resource
