BASIC is an independent, non-profit, nongovernmental research and advocacy organisation.
To ensure the ability to provide independent and objective oversight and analysis, NATO Watch seeks support from private individuals and foundations in member states and worldwide. We do not accept NATO central government or defence industry funding, either directly or indirectly.
We are grateful to the following trusts and foundations for their support:
- The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation (UK) for providing initial seed funding in 2009 that enabled the development of this website, for support towards core costs during 2010-14, and for a further grant in 2017 that enabled this website to be updated and re-launched in the current format;
- The Marmot Trust (UK) for supporting our inaugural shadow NATO summit in March/April 2009; and
- The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (UK) for support towards our core costs during 2010-14 and regularly since 2017.
