Open Briefing is delighted to announce two recent fundraising successes.

The Oak Foundation’s international human rights programme has awarded us a three-year grant worth £155,000. We have been working on the Oak Foundation grant for over a year, and are honoured by the trust the organisation has placed in us as a new grantee.

The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation has awarded us a two-year grant worth £25,000. The foundation was our first major funder, and has supported us every year since we launched in 2011. We are extremely grateful for their ongoing support.

Together, these grants mean we can implement our plans to expand beyond the provision of intelligence to also provide security, training and equipment to help those striving to make the world a better place. More details to follow.

In the meantime, please consider supporting our work scrutinising the actions of governments and militaries and delivering a public intelligence service so that you know what is really going on in the world.

Many thanks,

Chris Abbott and the Open Briefing team
