Help us to influence policy through independent research
Our research findings are frequently in the news. Our name and our work is known to politicians, policy makers, academics, journalists and the general public. We achieve a sizeable impact through a relatively small income. Most of this income comes from winning research grants from research councils, charities and trusts, government departments and the European Commission. In 2013-2014 we received funding for research projects from many different organisations. We also have an income from subscriptions to our large-scale macroeconomic model for forecasting and policy simulations.
Almost all of our income goes directly into our research projects, leaving limited funds to ensure we have impact and influence. This could be so much stronger if we had funding to develop research ideas and to disseminate our findings. Please help us to achieve our aims of influencing policy to improve lives, by donating now.

In 2014 we launched a new programme for NIESR supporters to ensure that we can continue to carry out all of our activities which ensure we influence policy and change lives. Our supporters will pledge to give an annual gift of either £1,000 or £500 (or as monthly payments). This gift will go towards supporting new areas of research and work to increase our impact.
As a supporter you will receive invitations to our seminars, to guest speaker events and to our annual reception. You will also receive a quarterly supporters newsletter and a free subscription to our journal - the National Institute Economic Review. Most importantly, you will be helping us to achieve our aim of producing independent and high-quality research which influences policy.
