We’re delighted to be making these grants. They represent the range of our two focus areas and strategy, in the light of the C-19 crisis. And we’ve increased our grant making in response.
We think there’s a chance now to make substantial progress in areas like tax reform and international debt, in order to tackle poverty & inequality. We’re also glad to help strengthen organisations to get through these tough times.
We’re keen to keep investing in the infrastructure that helps campaigners, business and politicians work better together – particularly in our work on tax & fighting corruption.
And we’re starting work to take a more systematic approach to working on diversity, equity & inclusion.
