How we are funded

WYSE International is a registered charity and non-govenmental organisation (NGO) recognised by the United Nations Department for Public Information. We do not recieve statutory funding from any governments. Our funding comes from a range of individuals and organisations who feel inspired to support young emerging leaders who aim to lead positive change in the world. Our primary source of funding comes in the form of in-kind expertise from leadership professionals who deliver our programmes.

How we spend our funds

Our spending is overseen by our Board of Trustees who hold responsibility for the governance of the charity. In line with our mission to support as many young people as possible and to widen access to global leadership education, the bulk of our funds are spent on running programmes and offering bursaries. We keep costs low by not operating a physical office, and our work is primarily staffed by professionals who give their time on a pro-bono basis. Further information about our finances can be found on the  UK Charity Commission's website.
