Advanced Search

There are many ways you can search the data on this site.

Search for:

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"
  • "360G-wolfson-19750"


  • 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:

  • title
  • description

and see the list of field names via the stats.



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:

  • amountAwarded:>1000
  • amountAwarded:>=1000
  • amountAwarded::<1000
  • amountAwarded:<=1000

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~
