3ie receives US$ 4.5 million grant from philanthropist MacKenzie Scott

11 November 2022
We are proud to share that 3ie has received a gift from MacKenzie Scott of US$4.5 million in unrestricted funds for organizational support. Ms Scott, in a medium post, announced her recent round of donations of more than $1 billion to 343 organizations that are “supporting the voices and opportunities of people from underserved communities.”  This is a significant contribution that will help us build a stronger 3ie, and further our mission of improving lives through evidence-informed decision-making. We will be working internally and with our partners to ensure we use these funds strategically and effectively.   “We are excited to be among a select group of organizations that have received generous support from Ms MacKenzie Scott. This recognition and support are hugely motivating and will enhance our ability to make more high-quality evidence publicly available." --- Marie Gaarder, Executive Director Over the last 14 years, 3ie has grown from strength to strength. We have diversified the types of research we produce, the sectors we work in, the geographies we focus on and the populations we serve. Thanks to support from our partners, we have managed to keep public goods like our Development Evidence Portal free for all users and to strengthen the capacity to produce and use evidence to improve development programs and policies. We are committed to continuing this work, and once again, welcome the support from Ms Scott and others.
