Bribery and corruption divert scare resources that would otherwise help lift millions out of poverty. Corruption raises the cost of essential public services, such as education, nutrition, clean water and health care, and impedes investment that would translate into economic growth and a higher standard of living. TI-USA advocates for donor institutions to minimize these negative effects by doing more to ensure that development assistance funds reach their intended beneficiaries.
Your gift will help TI-USA ensure that resources reach those who need them the most. We work with donor organizations, including multilateral banks and US foreign aid institutions, to ensure that the full potential of development aid is achieved. TI-USA advises donors on their efforts to stamp out corruption, encourages them to make anti-corruption control programs a top priority, and assists them in mobilizing forces to combat corruption. It works across institutions to achieve consistent approaches.
