Corruption, whether in the public or private sector, affects all of us. It colours our world and other nations’ perceptions of us. We all need to do our bit to stop corruption.

As a non-profit organisation, Corruption Watch relies on our many friends and funders to enable us to do our work, to fight corruption, and to hold leaders accountable for their actions. This vital work we do would not be possible without the generous backing of our funders and supporters, whom we thank for their assistance, both financial and logistical.

Our funders range from charities and international foundations that focus on social development, to non-governmental organisations, advocacy groups and private sector companies operating in a variety of industries. Among them we count law firms, hosts of organisations, as well as private individuals. Through their help, we are able to tackle an issue that is core to the economic and social wellbeing of South Africa.

We have also received significant donations in kind from a number of law firms, auditing firms, media groups, development agencies and individuals.

Our sources of funding, and the ways in which we use that funding, are completely transparent. Download our audited financial statements for:
