Find Charity Information And Fundraising & Giving Statistics Quickly & Simply

You can choose from 3 levels of charity data size/complexity - from key information and analysis, through to data catalogues and huge data portals.  The largest I've found so far has 70,000 data sets. However, the majority of large data portals have key facts and statistics, and many have interactive maps and graphs, so can be easily used by almost anyone.

Find Charity Data And Statistics On Anything, Plus Pro Bono Advice & Free Analytical Tools

Data Finder finds 3 types of charity information. Facts and statistics on charities and the charity sector, the sectors charities work in (such as poverty, education and health), and also on charitable giving and donations.  It also finds pro bono data advice for charities and free data tools & software.

There are 19 search categories.  However, to make Data Finder as simple to use as possible, similar categories are paired, so there are 33 to choose from.  There is also a Key Word search option to find specific support.  Once you've run your search just click the name of any provider to be taken to their website.

Fundraising Research - Charitable Giving, Donations, Donors & Companies

Use the Fundraising & Donations search category to find data and statistics on fundraising, charitable giving and donations, and to research donors, prospects and companies.

If you're looking for grant makers, use Funding Finder.  For company donations, use the Help Finder Donations - Funding category and for products, including raffle items, the Donations - Products & Equipment category.

Cost of Living Crisis Data & Statistics

We are using the system's charity sector 'Big Data' for our monthly crisis impact assessments but also a range of cost of living crisis reports and data published by others.  To help everyone, links to these reports have been uploaded into Data Finder.

These will come up in searches automatically, or you can find all of them by using 'Cost of Living' in the key word search.  This includes charity data on food poverty, volunteering, faith groups and Scotland.  To find a very much larger volume of related statistics, use the Poverty & Deprivation search category.

Minoritised Group Data & Statistics

Diversity and inclusion is something we think we should do, not just talk about.  Find statistics and data on those who have been marginalised and excluded, using the Minoritised Groups search category.  The Charity Excellence Funding Finder and Help Finder online directories have similar categories.

Global, UK, UK Country & Local Data & Statistics

Choose the geographical areas you want data for.  If you want local county or borough statistics and it doesn't seem to come up in your location search, use the Key Word search by entering the location name or search using 'borough' to find a national data set that includes this level of data. Many international data portals include UK data, so don't overlook these.

The legal bits - there are no set-up, ongoing or any other costs for either charities or those who use it.

However, it may not be used for commercial purposes.  Nor by anyone who promotes a political party, or holds, expresses or promotes any kind of discriminatory or extremist views, including, but not limited to the disability, BAME and LGBTQI+ and Trans communities, women or religious minorities, such as our Muslim and Jewish communities.  I very much like and respect them and, if you don't, go somewhere else.

You Must Safeguard Your Own Security

We would never knowingly link to any website that contains offensive, illegal or suspect information, or potentially scam links and we carry out checks as best we can.  However, our system links charities not only to help but also websites with online lists of links and other databases.  This gives you access to an enormous range of funding, resources and help but no organisation, let alone a volunteer run charity, could potentially check and validate everything. 

Consequently, in using our system you accept that we cannot take any responsibility for 3rd party content or links and you agree that you will carry out all reasonable checks to keep yourself safe. 

In the event you ever come across something that concerns you, please inform us immediately -
