Going Global: A review of international development funding by UK trusts and foundations
Report by Lucy de Las Casas and Caroline Fiennes of New Philanthropy Capital. This report was commissioned by three funders of international development: the Nuffield Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and ourselves. It places trust funding within the broader context of government and individual donations. Trusts are a significant funder of civil society and highly valued by International NGOs. Indeed many small and medium sized INGOs rely on foundations for support. The researchers concentrated on somewhat smaller foundations and asked what motivates them or discourages them from funding internationally.
