Accounts and funders

Transparency is fundamental to democracy. Organisations trying to influence policy should be open about where their money comes from. NEF publishes the names and amounts of everyone that gives over £5,000 and every report we write says who funded it, giving us the highest transparency ratings from Transparify and Who Funds You? The next time you see one of us on TV or hear us on the radio, you can be certain that we are not pushing a hidden agenda.

NEF is proud to be independent of political parties and special interests, giving us the ability to truly stand up for people and planet. We are only able to do so thanks to the broad cross section of individuals and organisations that support our work.

We are delighted to thank our major funders, listed below, who supported NEF in our 2021/​22 financial year. 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 can change the rules of the economy.
