Funding and transparency


NRC is a strongly principled organisation. We believe in transparency and hold ourselves accountable to our donors, partners, staff and the displaced people we serve. To maintain the integrity of our work, we adhere to these principles:

Non-discrimination and respect for human dignity:
We are dedicated to providing support for the most vulnerable – regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, political views or disabilities.

Transparency:
We ensure that details on how we work and where our funds go are accessible and visible. Our information aligns with the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). Read more about our commitment to accountability.

Anti corruption
Corruption, theft and mismanagement are common in many of the countries where we operate. NRC has robust anti-corruption and risk management systems. We hold our partners to the same high standards.

Cost-efficiency:
More than 90 per cent of NRC's costs are used in the crisis-affected countries where we operate. NRC’s current administrative costs average between 9-10% of our global budget. Read more about our finances.

Ethical guidelines
Our partners share our values on human rights, employees' rights, the environment and anticorruption. We don't partner with companies whose main business comes from
weapons sales, alcohol or tobacco related products. Read our Ethical Guidelines on corporate partnerships.

Monitoring and evaluation:
We routinely reflect on our experiences and projects in the field, critically assessing our projects at the field and management levels.

At NRC, we take pride in the principles of our humanitarian action
