Financial support from non-profit organisations and foundations decreased 12 per cent year-on-year to total €6.9 million. The majority of this amount comes from foundations and other NGOs, with the remainder coming from clubs, associations, religious organisations and educational institutions.
War Child - via our Research and Development (R&D) team - developed a number of successful partnerships over the course of the year. These included the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Plan Denmark and LEGO Foundation - who made a significant contribution to our PlayMatters project which was secured in the third quarter of 2019.
Through the ARC project, War Child's Programme Partnership and Grants team has continued to collaborate with its consortium partners in the Netherlands including Stichting ZOA and VNG International. Moreover, our leading role in the Youth Now Coalition was strengthened in 2019 - a year which saw the design and implementation of a needs assessment in Burundi and associated fundraising activities rolled-out.
Large charitable foundations - such as ELMA Foundation, H&M Foundation, Open Society Foundation and Bernard van Leer Foundation - continued to make a significant contribution to our work over the course of 2019.
New foundations came on board to support our work in 2019 - including the Abdul Aziz Ghurair Foundation for Education, Templeton World Charity Foundation and UBS Optimus Foundation.
