ZOA has a steady supporter base that increased over the years to around 39,000 individual donors. It shows that we are connected with our large Dutch constituency. Some institutional donors require co-funding or cost sharing. Because we are firmly rooted in Dutch society, ZOA can leverage private funding as co-funding to institutional funding.
ZOA has highly valued and long-term relations with the Dutch government and other governments, such as the American, British, Australian and Swedish governments, the EU, international foundations and several United Nations agencies such as UNHCR, OCHA, WFP and UNICEF. Institutional funding is provided after due diligence processes, regular audits and compliance with donor policies. ZOA therefore adheres to high international standards, such as CHS, Sphere, Child Protection and IATI. We are a signatory of the Grand Bargain. Institutional funding enables us to provide more assistance to larger groups of beneficiaries and to continue to grow as professional organisation.
