Three Commitments



We are excited to introduce the official launch of the Three Commitment Campaign under the umbrella of the Foundation Practice Rating (FPR).

Following a successful pilot, we are now extending this initiative to support foundations in enhancing their practices related to Diversity, Accountability, and Transparency. Working closely with committed funders such as yourself, our shared mission is to elevate the standards of foundations in these crucial domains. By focusing on three activities, we believe this makes the FPR achievable. Anyone can improve their practices; it doesn’t matter if you are big or small.


After the 14 March 2023, we aim for funders to finalise and publicly announce three commitments for 2024.

Where and how

The campaign activities will primarily unfold on social media platforms. We encourage you to publish your commitments on March 14th and tag us using @FPracticeRating on Twitter and Foundation Practice Rating on LinkedIn.


The Three Commitment Campaign serves as an intervention to prompt foundations to adopt better practices. Public commitments hold you accountable and inspire positive change within your organisation(s) and the communities you impact. It’s a call to action, inviting everyone to contribute to the journey towards a more equitable foundation system. The campaign is not merely about making promises; it’s about effecting change. Your engagement in this campaign can lead to transformative shifts in how foundations operate, contributing to a more just and inclusive society.
