“Today's issues that are parochial can immediately become global because of the interaction of many countries and institution; events are more transparent and leaders are floodlit on the world stage.  They will therefore be more prepared to access the wisdom of those who have emerged successfully from similar experiences, particularly when such help is confidential”.

Financing Our Work

The Global Leadership Foundation is a not-for-profit, independent foundation.  Overheads are met through donations from private individuals, corporations and other foundations.   GLF's independence and credibility is preserved by limiting the size of donations from any one source and GLF also exercises careful judgement that it is not in receipt of funds from any source likely to be considered damaging to its reputation for probity.

Running costs are kept low by operating with a minimum of staff, infrastructure and fixed assets, and Project costs such as international travel and in-country accommodation are sought from host governments.  Where this proves difficult, funding is sought from an appropriate grant-giving agency.

Donors are invited to join GLF’s International Council, a community of supporters comprising business leaders, philanthropists and foundations.   While the Foundation is transparent with its Members and financial backers about the sources of its funds, it will respect donors’ wishes for anonymity if preferred.
