ICTR received a generous budget from Atlantic Philanthropies that covered its establishment and its infrastructure during its first five years of operation.

Towards the end of the granting period, Atlantic Philanthropies commissioned an independent assessment of ICTR’s first five years. That evaluation highly praised the Center’s “catalytic role” in the development of knowledge about Israel’s Third Sector, its “significant achievements” in research and its impact on public dialogue.

For the last years, the Mandel Foundation has decided to support the Center by covering the costs pertaining to its infrastructure.

Additional funding sources for ICTR research projects came from the Ford Foundation, JDC-Israel, the Kahanoff Foundation, Ma’ala, Yad Hanadiv Foundation, the Israel Academy of Sciences, the Israel Science Foundation, P.E.F., the Jewish Agency for Israel, the National Insurance Institute for Israel and the Bank of Jerusalem Limited.
