Global Poverty

The grants listed and described below are FMF’s current grants of £10,000 or more. We make a significant number of smaller grants to a wide range of social change projects at TFN events.

Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP) is an international association focused on helping researchers and teachers enhance their impact on poverty. It does so by advancing collaboration among poverty-focused academics, promoting effective outreach to policy makers and broader public audiences, and helping academics pursue applied research and intervention projects as well as campaigns on specific issues. ASAP is organised in country Chapters and FMF supports the operational costs of ASAP Global which provides a secretariat function to the Chapters.

RESULTS UK is an international NGO that uses advocacy and campaigning to bring about the end of extreme poverty. The organisation has a diverse network of volunteer-led grassroots groups that meet monthly to learn and to coordinate advocacy activity. FMF is supporting a programme to further the use of Climate Risk Insurance (CRI) as a tool to protect vulnerable populations against climate change-related extreme weather events and as a “Pro-Poor” means of improving livelihoods and opportunities for prosperity.


Global Financial Integrity (GFI), a Washington, DC-based research and advisory organization, is a global leader in estimating the magnitude of illicit money leaving developing country economies.  As of 2013, the most recent year for which data are available, GFI analysis shows that over $1 trillion in illicit capital was siphoned offshore.  This, they believe, is the most damaging economic condition affecting the global poor. FMF is supporting GFI’s work to expose and eliminate trade mispricing, estimated in 2013 at US$878 billion.
