Funding policy

Our policy on sources of funding

Scientists for Global Responsibility only accepts financial support from organisations whose activities are consistent with our values and aims. These values and aims are specified in full in our constitution.

In particular, we do not accept any funding from:

  • the military (e.g. armed forces; government defence ministries; military corporations)
  • large privately-owned corporations involved in the controversial use of science and technology (e.g. fossil fuel or other unsustainable resource extraction or use; nuclear power; biotechnology).

SGR is open about all sources of funding, which are specified in detail in our annual reports.

SGR depends on membership subscriptions and donations for its basic running costs. In the last five years we have also successfully applied to the following organisations (in alphabetical order) for funding:
