A genuine commitment to transparency should be high on our agendas.

Transparency Award

Transparency Award is for organisations at the cutting edge of NGO effectiveness and accountability.

In recent years, multiple stakeholders including funders, governments, supporters, the public, beneficiaries and partners have demanded that NGOs be more open and accountable about how funds are spent and with what result. Transparency that permeates all levels of the organisation is absolutely key to this fundamental shift in how NGOs manage and report on their financial flows.

The submissions

This year’s submissions have led the way in accountability and transparency best practice. As transparency champions, these projects demonstrate how the organisation is going beyond the minimum requirements needed to tick the transparency box.
