Breaking the Starvation Cycle: How international funders can stop trapping their grantees in the starvation cycle and start building their resilience

Autores/Participantes : Siham Bortcosh, Tim Boyes-Watson

Humentum, in partnership with Funders for Real Cost, Real Change (FRC), released a groundbreaking research report revealing inadequate coverage of administrative costs by funders. The data demonstrates how international funders are trapping their grantees in a “starvation cycle” by not sufficiently funding their administrative or so-called overhead costs.

Key recommendations for funders coming out of the report are:

  • consistently covering a full and fair share of all associated administration costs
  • directly funding financial management capabilities for grantees and making some contribution to unrestricted funds
  • systematically collecting data on the extent of adequate cost coverage.
