Media Action top 10 donors 2019-2020

We are grateful to the wide range of funders, including national governments, the UN and other international organisations, foundations, corporate partners and private individuals that supported us in 2019/20.

Significant donors included the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the European Union, several UN agencies, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and many others.

The members of our Corporate Leaders Group contributed cash and in-kind support, and our annual fundraising event The Correspondents Dinner and gifts from individual donors continued to raise valuable unrestricted income for the organisation. The BBC provided gift in kind office facilities and a grant to reflect the value of programming that BBC Media Action provides to BBC World Service.
