Ask and ye shall receive: Open hGrant for WordPress went to version 1.1 today with two key features now available:
- Easy upload of big batches of grants
Just export your grants data to a spreadsheet and save it in CSV format. Once you’re in the WordPress dashboard, choose hGrants/Import CSV to upload the file, use the dropdowns tom map it to the hGrant spec and click Import. Voilà and not a moment too soon, we’re thinking.
- One-click activation
Once you’re up and running, clicking this button sends email to us and to the Foundation Center hGrant folks, who can test your grants data feed for inclusion in their open data intiatives. Easy peasy.

Great to read Open hGrant’s technical lead, Jason Camp, weigh in on our plug-in over at Mission Minded. He talks about how this small tool
…creates a big opportunity to collect, catalog, map, and analyze giving across multiple organizations around the country. Not only do grantmakers using the plug-in get an easy way to display searchable, sortable, customizable grant listings, they also can instantly share their data with the Foundation Center.
Around the country and around the globe: thanks for Foundation Center’s partnership with the International Aid Transparency Initiative, reporting globally is just one click away with Open hGrant for WordPress.
Ta-dah. You can find the Open hGrant plug-in over at WordPress now.
Congrats to the team at Mission Minded for their hard work and creativity: Jason Camp, Zack Kushner, Nick Ohrn; and to the Foundation Center for their support and guidance: Janet Camarena, Jeanine Corey and C. Davis Parchment.
Here are the steps for getting the plug-in going on your site.
