3ie Donors

Increasingly, bilateral and multilateral donors are using rigorous evidence to inform their decision making and be more accountable to the public.

Our donors partner with us in funding 3ie grant windows, evidence gap maps and systematic reviews and also provide major core institutional support. Many join 3ie to boost their capacity to commission, produce and use impact evaluations and evidence syntheses.
