Christian Aid receives funding from the UK Government, Scottish Government, Irish Government, European Commission, USAID, Irish Aid and other key partners, which enables us to make a bigger, more lasting difference in more people’s lives than we could otherwise do.

In 2012/13, 41% of Christian Aid’s income came from institutional donors, and these funds were spent on advancing our humanitarian and development work across the world. The current value of our institutional and other donor programmes includes:
