Open Data

Open Data on grants awarded

We have released data on the grants we have awarded over the last two years.

What is open data?

Wiltshire Community Foundation subscribes to the following definition of open data:

- Open data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone

- It is subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike

- Open data is the building block of open knowledge

- Open knowledge is what open data becomes when it’s useful, usable and used

- Wiltshire Community Foundation is committed to a strong community and voluntary sector in Wiltshire and Swindon. We believe that open data can assist with this ambition, through enabling transparency of our actions, in the form of open data.
