Information Changes Lives

Internews Europe improves access to information worldwide. We do this by strengthening local media and information systems so that all citizens can make their voices heard, claim equal rights and understand critical issues. We are leaders in innovation in digital technologies to support vulnerable, crisis-hit populations.

How we are Funded

Internews Europe is a registered charity and non-profit association. We are entirely financed by grants and contracts with a range of European donor governments, the European Commission, UN Agencies and some private charitable foundations within Europe.  

Approximately 90% of our average annual income comes from public funding sources with the remainder made up of private trust and foundation income. A number of our donors fund large multi-country programmes, whilst many of our grant funded projects are specific to individual countries. We are the successful beneficiary of a number of highly competitive challenge funds and are engaging increasingly with the high impact philanthropy sector.

Annual Operating Budgets by year 2010-2012


2012 operating Budget by donor contribution 

The operating budget is the entire organisational expenditure (direct programme costs and head office costs) for the calendar year; Internews Europe’s principal operating currency is EUROS; the GBP and USD figures presented for comparison use an average of the exchange rates for 2012. 2012 figures are based on final spending forecasts for the year and are subject to modest variation during the final audit and associated statutory/regulatory reports. They are therefore rounded to the nearest million for the purposes of this report.
