Civic Exchange’s work is made possible through the generosity of our funders and partners that share our goals and objectives. They include private foundations, corporations, government and public sector organisations, individuals and academia.

Support from funders and partners enables us to fulfill our mission, which is to engage society and influence public policy through independent research, dialogue and the development of practical solutions. We neither seek nor accept financial support that would undermine our mission.

As an independent, non-partisan think tank, we enter into contractual relationships only if they are aligned with our mission and programme objectives. We are transparent on the sources of our funding, how we spend it, and whom we engage in our work. We are proud of the diverse support we receive and report regularly on the sources of our funding. A summary list of our current funders and partners is included in our 2016/17 Annual Report and a detailed account of our funding sources can be found in our Audited Financial Statements. Our major funders include:
