Projects we’ve funded

We are committed to being as transparent as possible. We work with the 360Giving Initiative to publish our grant data.

By publishing our data openly and in a standard format we hope to contribute to improved analysis of philanthropic giving. 360Giving is developing tools that will help funders and fundraisers make use of grant data.

We have used the 360Giving data standard to create a spreadsheet of all our grants awarded between 2014 and 2019: Wolfson Foundation grants (XLSX) or Wolfson Foundation grants (CSV).
