Honest about our management

We too are accountable. Our annual reports share all of the relevant information on how our organization is run over the year - both the positives and the negative -, as we continue in our efforts to raise the bar:

Donations

Our work is made possible thanks to the donations of citizens who are committed to changing society through fighting opacity. Leading by example, we publicly acknowledge the support of those who make our work possible. Civio does not accept anonymous donations under any circumstances, in order to comply with the strictest standards of transparency. These are the people who have already supported us.

Institutional support and grants

The support of large donors helps us to carry out our international projects or those requiring higher levels of funding. These are our travel buddies, they trust us to carry out in-depth investigations into relevant topics and generate positive change in society.
