Global grant-making


As a follow up to Going Global published in 2007, the same foundations, Nuffield, Paul Hamlyn and ourselves, have commissioned an update on the scale and character of the contribution of independent foundations in the the UK to international development, called Global grant-making. Based on information from 2009/10 it concludes that foundations provide around £292 million in funding to civil society working on development, roughly half that from the Department for International Development. This is around 9% of the total spending of all UK foundations. Foundations fund a wide range of work and Africa attracts the largest percentage of funding at 37%. The report concludes with a series of challenges and issues for foundations working in this field.
