How we are funded

The Police Foundation is an independent registered charity. Our work would not be possible without the support of a wide range of funders, including charitable trusts, foundations, businesses and individual donors. We receive most of our funding from charitable grants or donations, although we also carry out consultancy work for organisations such as police forces.

The Police Foundation believes that there is a public interest in the funding of think tanks, and we are committed to transparency in this area. Every year our annual accounts are published on the Charity Commission website, outlining how we raise and spend our funds.

We are extremely grateful to our generous supporters. Those for the year ended 30th June 2017 are listed below.
