ILC relies on a number of core donors funding its strategy. On top ILC receives resources for initiatives that are particularly successful, in case those fuds cannot go to its members directly. The donor community behind ILC got stable over the current 2016-21 strategy, though COVID outbreak has changed priorities globally and for some ILC donors.
The past triennium came with THREE BIG ASKS on ILC. We were requested to:
- Support regionalization but stay agile by keeping indirect costs low.
Indirect costs remained consistent between this triennium and the last, at 5%
- Increase core funding over earmarked funding
Core funding reached 82%, up from 63% in the previous triennium
- Act as catalyst for leveraged funds mobilized directly by ILC partnerships
Leveraged funding reached 83%, up from 32% in the previous triennium
