How we are funded
Close to 57% of The B Team’s funding comes from the Founders Circle, a group comprised of many of our Leaders, Foundations and individuals, who provide unrestricted support to the organization. We are also funded by a growing group of programmatic funders who provide restricted support, tied to one or more of our Causes, with the aim to scale the impact of these efforts.
How we use our funding
Unrestricted funding is allocated across the organization, in line with the priorities set by the Board to achieve our mission. Programmatic funding is distributed based on the objectives and deliverables of each cause area in partnership with each donor.
