At GlobalGiving, we believe that good ideas can come from anyone, at any place, at any time, and that collaboration and iteration leads to the most effective learning. We love opportunities to work with external researchers or others interested in using our open data sources to build understanding about how best to transform aid and philanthropy. We have several open data resources available to support projects like this.
For those who want to start exploring quickly or easily combine data about GlobalGiving projects and organizations with other international aid datasets, we provide downloadable XML datasets of both activities and organizations that follow the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) standard.
Our REST API contains more than 30 different methods for querying detailed information about GlobalGiving projects and organizations. We recommend using this option to quickly build datasets tailored to your research based on our existing open data resources.
Trying to answer a research question but can’t find the data you need in our other open data sources? Please let us know what you’re working on and what datasets you're interested in and we’ll be glad to discuss ways we might be able to support your research with a tailored solution.
