About us


This project is led by Friends Provident Foundation and supported by other funders.


The Foundation Practice Rating is a project supported by like-minded Foundations that want to improve practice across the sector on the key themes of accountability, transparency and diversity.

The funders of this project have formed a working group to guide this work, and we have consulted with the public to formulate the criteria used to assess the foundations.

We have outsourced the research to Giving Evidence. Giving Evidence works to make charitable giving more effective by encouraging and enabling charitable giving based on sound evidence.

We will include all partner funders in the annual assessments.
