Find that Charity

The site is a tool for finding non profit organisations by name. It brings together data from a number of sources to include a record for a large number of non profit organisations in the UK, including every registered charity.

The site was initially put together by David Kane. Huge thanks to other contributors, particularly Bob Harper who implemented the Northern Ireland charity data and Katherine and others at 360Giving for their help and feedback.

The data is used directly from regulatory sources. Any corrections needed to the data should be directed to the regulators themselves, using the links below.

Update September 2020

Findthatcharity had a significant update in September 2020. The update broadened the range of organisations with data available, and also has a significant reworking of the look and feel of the site.

If you have any feedback, or find an issue with the site, then please do get in touch. david@dkane.net.
