Annual grant funding data  

We publish summaries of our grant funding data every year to show how we spend our money and to measure progress towards our commitment to ensuring the people we fund are more representative of the global population.

This is based on analysis of our data from our previous grant system and values may differ slightly to the grant data available for download.
