We are working strategically to ensure that the corrupt have nowhere to hide, no one to help and no impunity for their acts.
When Transparency International started out in the 1990s, many said that nothing could be done about corruption. We have been working hard to prove them wrong.
Our research, advocacy and campaigns help create new international standards and anti-corruption laws, bring corrupt leaders to justice, hold companies accountable for criminal behaviour at home and abroad – and much more.
Corruption affects and hurts us all: whether it prevents fair and equal access to healthcare during a pandemic, puts a price on an activist’s head or fuels deadly conflicts. We are committed to fighting it at all levels – but we can’t do it without supporters like you. Every donation, however big or small, powers our work and allows us to remain independent. Join us today and help us hold power to account.
This is what your donation to Transparency International does:
- You will be supporting the organisation at the forefront of the fight against corruption. Our global movement works in over 100 countries, and our national-level work is run by local anti-corruption activists who care about the future of their country and are committed to making a difference.
- Your support will ensure that the reports and complaints that we receive at the grassroots level help us identify patterns of corruption and power our regional and global advocacy to push for international anti-corruption law and standards. Corruption doesn’t stop at national borders – and neither do we.
- You will be funding our research and bold reform proposals that continue to serve as blueprints for national governments, multilateral institutions and other actors who commit to meaningfully fight corruption. We’ll continue to prove that there is nothing inevitable about corruption.
If corruption is a disease, then transparency is a central part of its treatment.

Donating to Transparency International means supporting anti-corruption work around the world.
The majority of your donation goes directly towards supporting frontline work done in local communities by our national chapters. This includes funding for our Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs), which make a vital difference to people’s daily lives.
Your donation also boosts our critical research into understanding and exposing corruption, as well as our work to change laws, policies and global anti-corruption frameworks that tackle corruption and the corrupt.
It’s possible to make a donation towards a specific area of work, but only if the donation value is over €5,000. To do so, please contact us directly.
You can find more information about how your money is being spent in our annual financial highlights documents.
We welcome donations in all forms: cash, legacies, in-kind (services), stock and real estate.
With every donation, however, we make sure it will not impair our independence to pursue our mission or endanger our integrity and reputation. You can read our Guiding Principles to learn more. We list the names of all donors giving over €1,000 annually in our financial reports and on our website.
Under German law we are obliged to issue a Spendenbescheinigung (donation receipt) for all donations over €200 made from within Germany – all such donations made without providing a full name and address cannot be accepted. We are also unable to accept donations made without an appropriate level of donor information, or which may be deemed fraudulent or suspicious. If your donation has been rejected in error, please contact us.
Yes. The most efficient way to support our work is to set up a recurring monthly or yearly subscription.
You can do this by selecting ‘monthly’ or ‘yearly’ when making a donation through our website, or by setting up a direct debit from your bank account to ours (please email us with your contact details if you choose this option).
We understand that circumstances change and not everyone will be able to give indefinitely. If you no longer wish to continue your recurring donation, please contact us, giving at least one week’s notice before your next expected donation. We will endeavour to cancel your subscription within one week.
Many of our national chapters accept direct individual donations in support of their work. See their details in a specific country to donate.
