Short Course: Rethinking your funding model

Funding is a key concern for every think tank due to how it affects its sustainability, the way people work, and the type of research that is conducted, as well as the potential for having sustained policy influence.

Even though there is an ample offering of capacity building activities that focus on how to do effective fundraising, little has been done in terms of systematising diverse existing funding models, along with their implications and consequences on think tanks’ performance, relevance, identity, and sustainability.

This course systematises what is known about the funding models that currently prevail in the South and analyses its implications and consequences so as to provide participating think tanks with better evidence to identify and implement changes.


This course seeks to:

  • Raise awareness of the different ways of generating and using funding and their implications for the organisation and its members.
  • To socialise new ideas and innovative practices in terms of better managing diverse funding models.
