Transparency

We are determinedly independent and strictly non-party in our approach. For this reason, none of our research is funded by either companies or individuals.  Our non-party approach is reflected in our cross-party Advisory Board

Reform publishes the details of its corporate donations. Companies support Reform in two ways: by supporting our general work through our Corporate Partnership Programme, and by sponsoring individual events.

Writing in The Guardian in September 2011, George Monbiot praised Reform for its transparency:

“The only rightwing thinktank that did well was Reform, which sent me a list of its biggest corporate donors. Reform lists its other corporate sponsors in its annual review(14), and earns 4 points. If they can do it, why can’t the others?”

In June 2012 the website whofundsyou.org awarded Reform a Transparency Rating of B.

In 2012, 64 different companies supported Reform. Organisations providing more than £5,000 in sponsorship during 2012 are listed below. Our Corporate Partners are listed here. The sponsor of each event is listed on our Events page.
