Since its inception, Inform has been committed to avoid taking any funding from sources which might seek to influence the nature of the information it provides on minority religious movements. Inform will not knowingly accept funding from any religious, spiritual or other group about which it may be asked to give a report.
We also accept small non-anonymous donations from individuals as ‘friends’ who offer a monthly commitment in support of Inform who receive regular updates and invitations to our online and offline events. We also accept anonymous donations (which can be gift-aided). The anonymous donations go through Stewardship.org and the identities of donors are not revealed to Inform.
We have traditionally accepted small amounts in support of our work from mainstream churches and religious organisations, e.g. The Church of England and the Catholic Archbishop about whom we do not directly research or provide information.
Our work is supported by grants and funded research projects from various UK government departments, academic funding bodies and charitable grant making organisations. Details of funding sources and spending year-on-year can be found in our accounts and annual returns which are available on the charity commission website.
