*The On Nigeria program primarily funds Nigerian organizations. After a legal review process, some organizations are determined to be “equivalent” to US 501c3 charitable organizations, while other organizations do not qualify as such. The Foundation must exercise expenditure responsibility (ER) on grants to organizations that are not “equivalent.” These organizations are only eligible for project grants. In addition, On Nigeria has made some “flexible support” grants, including to the Proteus Fund. Flexible support grants are technically project support grants but allow recipient organizations to program the funds flexibly.

Each year, TAI Members share their grants data with the Secretariat. Most of this data is already publicly available on their respective websites, however the Secretariat has now published all of its members’ grant data in one central place. We hope this makes for more efficient searches for funders and practitioners keen to know what organizations are supported by TAI members. The data contained here is that self-reported by our members as representing their transparency, participation and accountability related grants.

Due to differences in reporting terminology, the Secretariat harmonized differences between various grant types (core, project, program, etc.) as best possible. Therefore, the graph below is likely not 100% accurate in reporting core vs project funding dynamics, but provides an overview.

This data is current as of February 2022 and will be updated again in January 2023.
