Our values – The Freedom Fund

June 30, 2014

At the Freedom Fund, we believe a strong organisational culture– combined with a clear and powerful mission – is key to the success of a non-profit organisation. A strong culture positively shapes our performance and our relationships with stakeholders.

Establishing our culture requires us to operationalise our organisation’s values. To that end the Freedom Fund team has agreed that we want the organisation to have a culture of excellence, agility, courage and respect – and that we will work as a team to build and sustain that culture.

Our values are:

• We seek the greatest possible impact with the funds we invest
• We invest in the most effective interventions based on the best available evidence
• We continually strive to do better
• We pay attention to detail

• We think creatively
• We respond quickly to opportunities
• We learn from our mistakes and adapt
• We oppose unnecessary bureaucracy

• We are inspired by those on the frontlines of the fight against slavery
• We work in places and on issues where success may not be quick or easy
• We are not afraid to take calculated risks
• We speak clearly and plainly

• We value the knowledge of those most directly affected by slavery
• We acknowledge those who have gone before us and who work alongside us
• We share credit when we meet with success and support each other when challenges arise
• We never forget that donors trust us to make a real difference with their funds
• We believe that giving should be transformative and enhance the lives of donor and grantee alike
