The majority of SOMO’s funding comes from governments and private foundations. We also receive grants and membership contributions for the networks we host (MVO Platform,GoodElectronics, en OECD Watch).

We are grateful for the financial support of our funders:

  • The European Commission
  • The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • Various development organisations, cooperations and funds.

SOMO participates in two strategic alliances with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Fair, Green and Global Alliance and an alliance with Oxfam-Novib.

A small portion of our income comes from payment for research and other services commissioned by non commercial clients like civil society organisations and governmental and international institutions. See an overview of our clients. We charge VAT for these services.

SOMO does not accept funds from corporations or corporate foundations.
