Open Briefing supports charities and other social change agents around the world. We help ensure their physical, digital and psychological security or enhance their campaigns with intelligence and research support.

Open Briefing is a groundbreaking social enterprise launched in 2011. We are unique international team of humanitarians and human rights defenders working together with military, intelligence, law enforcement and government veterans. We are supported by volunteers and funded by charitable grants and public donations. Our work has been featured by the Guardian, the BBC, Daily Mail, BuzzFeed, Daily Beast, Wired and the Sun among many others. You can read an interview with our founder and executive director, Chris Abbott, in Manor magazine here.

There are three key reasons why your company should sponsor Open Briefing:

Brand building. Align your company with our mission to protect those striving to make the world a better place, thereby creating a positive association with your brand.

Marketing. Expand your company’s customer base by promoting your brand or product to our clients and online community.

Corporate social responsibility. Meet your company’s CSR and charitable giving goals and raise the social and environmental profile of your brand or product.

There are four levels of sponsorship for corporate supporters. Each has a different level of marketing return for your financial input.

Platinum sponsors will have their logo and website URL prominently displayed on the relevant pages of our website and any related printed material. We will also promote your brand or product through at least 12 social media updates, shares/retweets or blog posts and ‘like’ all your social media pages.
