GOT is a nonpartisan organization. The majority of GOT's funding comes from independent foundations. We are grateful for their confidence in us and we ensure that these resources are used effectively and efficiently, implementing stringent routines for financial control. GOT research is objective and independent; and, as a matter of principle, G does not accept funding from any source that seeks to interfere with or influence GOT research outcomes.

GOT also relies on the financial support of other organizations in order to carry out a broad research programme. Unrestricted funding support from individuals and organizations also helps GOT maintain its core research activities and at the same time develop new timely research in key areas of interest.
