We rely on core funding to sustain our independence and impact and project funding to contract the quality research so vital to our evidence-based approach to policy proposals.
CDE is committed to transparency and diversity of funding and offers a number of ways for donors to participate in the intellectual life of the organisation, from invitations to private events; conference calls; briefings and workshops.
CDE is a registered non-profit organisation – registration number 026-485-NPO. CDE receives funding from South African corporations and local and international funding agencies. Annual accounts are audited by Ernst & Young.
