Our donors and network

We are very grateful for our partnerships and the support of both our institutional and private donors. They allow us to fulfil our mission.

Among them are the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland, Nationale Postcode Loterij, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the Global Fund, the World Bank, the Mastercard Foundation, UN Agencies, and the European Commission.

We also cherish our loyal base of more than 280,000 private donors from the Netherlands.

Worldwide partner network

Cordaid stands with women, men, and children whose basic needs are unmet and whose rights are trampled. Starting in the heart of their communities, we build partnerships and mobilise global networks, resources, and knowledge to help people move beyond survival and live in dignity.

We actively participate in thematic and national networks in the countries we work in. These partnerships and alliances enable us to amplify the voice and agency of civil society organisations in our shared local, regional, and global advocacy efforts.

Faith-based networks

Furthermore, Cordaid’s membership in the faith-based networks Caritas, CIDSE and ACT Alliance, strongly enhances our work. For us, faith is a binding force that connects people across borders and religions, because we know that the universal value of compassion is equally embraced by all religions.

Cordaid brings together a diverse set of faith-based networks and leaders rooted in Catholic, Protestant and ecumenical traditions from global to local level.

Faith-based organisations have a strong track record in providing health care, education, and other basic services to people who have been marginalised the most. They play an instrumental role in fragile settings by providing material and psychosocial support, supporting peace and reconciliation processes, and ensuring a continued presence and safety net in contexts where civil society and institutional development are weak or broken down.

Cordaid is also a member of the Dutch Cooperating Aid Organisations, the Dutch Relief Alliance, CONCORD, Partners for Resilience, ShareNet, the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office, VOICE, and the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness.
