There are many ways you can search the data on this site.
Words and phrases
- A single word: e.g. people
- All words: e.g. young people gardens
- Require each word to be found: e.g. young AND people
- An exact phrase by enclosing it in quotes: e.g. "young people"
Using the above you can effectively filter the records to a single publisher or an exact grant.
- "The Dulverton Trust"
- A specific field: e.g. title:gardens (will search the "title" field for the word "gardens")
- A field with no value (or is missing): e.g. missing:description (search the field "description" for grants that have no value (or is missing))
- A field that has any non-null value: e.g. exists:title
Fields are shown on many records. Others you might like to try:

Find grants in a date range:
- Planned start date in 2012: e.g. plannedDates.startDate:[2012-01-01 TO 2012-12-31]
- Planned start date in 2012 and planned end date in 2014: e.g. plannedDates.startDate:[2012-01-01 TO 2012-12-31] AND plannedDates.endDate:[2014-01-01 TO 2014-12-31]
- Amount awarded between £0 and £100: e.g. amountAwarded:[0 TO 100]
- Amount awarded between £500 and £1000: e.g. amountAwarded:[500 TO 1000]
You can also search ranges with one side unbounded:
You can also use the * wildcard (see below) when asking for a range: e.g. amountAwarded:[500 TO *]
Wildcard searches can be run on individual terms, using ? to replace a single character, and * to replace zero or more characters: e.g. b?g, you*
You can search for terms that are similar to, but not exactly like our search terms, using the “fuzzy” operator: e.g. youht~ yung~ pple~
