How we are funded

IPPR is an independent registered charity and our work would not be possible without the support offered to us by a wide range of funders, including charitable trusts, foundations, businesses, unions, voluntary sector organisations, local government and national government departments. We never accept money from political parties.

IPPR recognises that there is a public interest in the funding of thinktanks and we are committed to increasing transparency in this area. Every year, we publish our annual report, which outlines how our funds are raised and spent. Who Funds You? has awarded IPPR a top transparency rating of 'A'. Furthermore, in 2015 Transparify awarded IPPR its four-star 'broadly transparent' rating, making us the only one of the 11 British thinktanks assessed to be rated as 'transparent'.

In this chart we show the proportion of funding we received from different sources during 2014.
