Gates giving millions to the ‘independent’ BBC – no wonder they give him an easy ride. Live debate Mr Gates? Any time you like …

We are grateful to the wide range of funders, including national governments, the UN and other international organisations, foundations, corporate partners and private individuals that supported our 100 different projects in 2017/18.

Significant donors included the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the European Commission, several UN agencies, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the British Council.

The 15 members of our Corporate Leaders Group contributed cash and in-kind support, and our annual fundraising event The Correspondents Dinner and gifts from individual donors continued to raise valuable unrestricted income for the organisation. The BBC provided gift in kind office facilities and a grant to reflect the value of programming that BBC Media Action provides to BBC World Service.

Find out more about BBC Media Action’s Corporate Leaders Group and how to donate.

The financial information on this page has been taken from the Annual Report & Accounts for the year to 31 March 2018.
