Government Contributions

Since being founded in 2011, OGP has grown from eight to 78 participating countries, a growing number of locals, and thousands of civil society organizations working together to become the foremost global forum for advancing transparency, accountability, and public participation in government. To continue its work and fulfill its mission and vision, OGP relies on its members making annual contributions to the organization. In 2014, the Steering Committee resolved that all countries would be expected to contribute to the partnership’s budget, starting in 2015.

We are grateful to all OGP members for their contributions to the Partnership since then, which are a crucial source of funding. In 2019, member contributions made up 23% of OGP’s annual revenue. Member contributions help foster greater collective ownership of OGP among all participating members, and show political support for the institution. Sustained financial contributions allows OGP to execute it’s strategic goals, including providing support, guidance, tools, and accountability to countries, encouraging peer exchange and learning across OGP, and creating the space in regional and global events for political leadership on open government.

Country contributions are based on the World Bank’s income classification, with the following recommended tiers established by the Steering Committee:

Income Tier Minimum Contribution (US$) Recommended Contribution (US$)
Low Income 10,000 25,000
Lower-Middle Income 25,000 50,000
Upper-Middle Income 50,000 100,000
High Income 100,000 200,000

In line with OGP’s Disclosure Policy, we proactively publish all financial contributions to OGP, including those from governments. The table below provides an overview of all country contributions received by OGP. Any specific considerations are noted below the table.

Notes:

1) In some cases, members have covered more than one annual contribution in a single payment or paid a contribution after the calendar year ended. This table shows the years covered, not the date paid.

2) Minimums are based on World Bank income levels which can change from year to year. This table shows the 2020 minimums.

3) In place of country contributions, the UK, US, and Sweden make large grants from their foreign aid agencies.
