Funding Policy

Collateral Global is an independent non for profit company, registered with Companies House UK.12998042.

Our work is made possible thanks to the generosity of a range of donors including trusts, foundations, health professionals, scientists and members of the public.

We are committed to openness and transparency about the sources of our funding. 

As our funding policy makes clear, Collateral Global, maintains independence from its funders who do not influence our work in return for their financial support.

Our policy is to ensure that Collateral Global is not dependent upon a single source of funding.

Collateral Global’s principal funding is via organisations and individuals who share our vision.  

All financial support is governed by our funding principles:

  • We encourage donations from organisations that support our aims and values
  • We value our integrity and independence and all donations are accepted on this basis
  • We encourage donations from organisations with a strong interest in science and evidence in society, although we do not accept donations where there is a risk of conflict of interest
  • We welcome donations from individuals, including those linked to payroll giving

Donations from individuals and small private trusts will be acknowledged publicly at the request of the donor.

Occasional direct sponsorship of activities will be by written agreement. Direct sponsorship of activities will also be acknowledged on related publicity.
