Our funders at core

Friends Provident Foundation

The Friends Provident Foundation supports Core Economics website with two grants. The initial grant awarded in 2015 supported the creation of new teaching, learning and assessment resources (freely available in The Economy e-book and on the Core Economics website website); creation of a rich learning environment that can be used by economics students and the general public; diffusion of the Core Economics website curriculum through the university system and beyond; and the creation of communities of teachers and learners through workshops and other promotional activities. The second grant awarded in 2019 is intended to support Core Economics website with operational costs and enable the maintenance of the project, delivery of outputs and scaling up to ensure continued success and viability of the project. The most prominent output of these activities will be The Economy 2.0 edition and the creation of additional teaching and learning materials.


The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation supports Core Economics website with two grants. The first grant, awarded in 2018, is an operational grant that enables further organisational development, as well as technological development of the Core Economics website publishing platform to enable the delivery of additional interactive teaching and learning materials. The second grant was awarded in 2020 for Core Economics website to continue its work on transforming the content and pedagogy of introductory economics with a special focus on developing US specific content.


Omidyar Network

Omidyar Network supports further development of Core Economics website’s digital infrastructure to facilitate the creation of new Core Economics website content and its delivery through a new integrated learning environment tailored for the needs of the diverse global community of Core Economics website users. Omidyar Network is supporting Core Economics website’s response to COVID-19. In addition, together with the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation grant, Omidyar Network supports the development of Core Economics website’s US specific content.


Open Society Foundations

The Open Society Foundations grant supported the evolution of Core Economics website from a research project into a legal entity – the Core Economics website Economics Education, a registered charity in England and Wales (number 1175143). The grant enabled Core Economics website to be well equipped with personnel to manage the increased level of activity of the organization. In addition, it enabled the creation of an innovative, best-practice, open-source publishing platform for the online editions of The Economy and for translations and adaptations of the text for different user communities. This has broken new ground in changing the way multi-format books are made – the platform has the ability to deliver a project as an e-book, an app, and camera ready pdf for printing with a click of a button.


The Teagle Foundation

The Teagle Foundation supports the Core Economics website USA Project in its effort to expand and strengthen the network of Core Economics website instructors and students in American colleges. The foundation has helped Core Economics website USA run annual teaching workshops and launch the Core Economics website-Teagle Fellowship program for graduate student instructors. Through the grant received from the Teagle Foundation, Core Economics website USA is also working to build a cross-campus consortium of colleges and universities that will help generate awareness about the Core Economics website curriculum.
