Financing Our Work

The Global Leadership Foundation is a not-for-profit, independent foundation which offers its services to leaders on a pro-bono basis.

Overheads are kept low by operating with a very small staff and minimum infrastructure.  Costs 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 exercises careful judgement that it is not in receipt of funds from any source likely to be considered damaging to its reputation for probity.

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 and philanthropists who are invited to events and functions, including the GLF Annual Meeting.
