A new campaign has been launched by Institute for Voluntary Action Research  (IVAR) and London Funders, in collaboration with United St Saviour’s Charity and a small group of UK foundations and charities. They are calling on funders to adopt simpler, more flexible practices that make life easier for those they fund, in light of the ongoing uncertainty caused by Covid-19. Their ambition is to see these commitments extend beyond the crisis: to become standard practice in the sector.

We are one of 50 funders who have signed up to their eight commitments and joined a community of practice with other funders and charities to improve practice together.

8 commitments to open & trusting grant-making
1. Don’t waste time
2. Ask relevant questions
3. Accept risk
4. Act with urgency
5. Be open
6. Enable flexibility
7. Communicate with purpose
8. Be proportionate
