How to fund the ENN

Donate now

Why fund the ENN? 

The ENN occupies a unique space in the humanitarian sector to support and fast track learning and improve practice amongst those working with the most nutritionally vulnerable. It is an essential professional support to those working in extreme and often isolated situations.  We influence policy, guidance and research agendas.

Our resources are available free of charge so that they are equally accessible to all. They are available online and in print. For our regular publications, print and postage are significant costs. However, print copy is necessary for access to our work worldwide, especially where internet access is limited, expensive or not available.

Our project work covers areas where there are gaps in evidence or guidance that compromises programming.  These activities are generally funded as distinct projects through tied funding. Untied funding or strategic funding enables us to be more responsive to needs that emerge in the sector.

We greatly appreciate – and need – the support of a range of external donors to enable our work.

Meeting our costs

The cost to produce one issue of Field Exchange (editorial staff and office support) of 80 A3 pages and mail 4000 copies worldwide is approx. £42,000 (€51,240, $62,513). Produced three times a year, this is annual cost of approx. £126,000 (€153,720, $187,538).

The total annual cost for a three language edition of Nutrition Exchange (editorial, office support and translation) of X A4 pages mailed to around 10,000 people worldwide is approx. £84,848 (€103,515, $126,288).

Research, reviews and meetings are costed on a project by project basis. We keep overhead costs low by running a single small office in Oxford for administration and finance staff. Technical staff are home based.

Funding support

We welcome funding in all shapes and forms. We are happy to submit project proposals and to receive one-off or multi-year contributions. You can sponsor a particularly themed or language edition of our publications or particular projects/events. Upcoming sponsorship opportunities are:

Please contact us if you would like to explore any of these.

Individual donations

Individual donations make a big difference too – you can donate online or contact us for how to help. 

For example, if you receive Field Exchange or Nutrition Exchange in print, consider making a contribution to help us maintain our open access policy. 

To produce and mail a copy of Field Exchange to you or a colleague in a low income setting costs us approx. £32 (€38, $50) per year (three editions). Online access only costs around £20 (€25, $30).  

To produce and mail a copy of Nutrition Exchange to you or a colleague in a low income setting costs us approx. £8.50 (€10, $13) per edition. Online access only costs around £6.50 (€8, $10).  

Donor visibility

All our donors are acknowledged online and in funded publications and work. Sponsored work will be acknowledged in all materials. We enjoy good working relationships with our government donors and consider this a strong partnership with good communication. We submit periodic reports as required by individual donors and undertake both an ENN annual audit of accounts and donor-specific audits as required.
