Transparency is fundamental to democracy and we believe that all organisations trying to influence policy should be open about how they are funded. The next time you see us on TV you can be sure that our opinions are not pushing a hidden agenda.

NEF is proud to be independent of political parties and special interests. We are a registered charity and rely on a broad cross section of individuals, charities, companies and public sector funders to undertake our work.

We are delighted to thank our major funders, listed below. We are also very grateful to all of you, too numerous to name, who give generously each month or have donated to one of our appeals. Together we are a powerful voice for people and planet: click here to donate to NEF. For more information about leaving us a gift in your will, please click here.

NEF's total income for 2013-14 was £3,556,076. This was derived from three sources: major grants and donations (listed below), individual supporters and donors, and earned income. We earn income through consultancy services in impact evaluation and organisational development for charities, the public sector and businesses – much of it through NEF Consulting. These contracts do not affect our research and advocacy agenda. Full financial information is available in our Annual Report and Accounts.
