The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT) is a network of governments, multilateral organizations, NGOs, professional associations, and private foundations dedicated to fiscal transparency, citizen engagement, and government accountability in countries around the world.

Hosted by the International Budget Partnership and guided by five additional lead stewards, GIFT focuses its efforts on four streams of work: (1) advancing global norms on fiscal transparency, (2) increasing and improving peer learning and technical assistance, (3) aligning incentives work with greater knowledge and private sector involvement, and (4) harnessing new technologies and open data to engage the general public.

Omidyar Network’s general operating grant will support GIFT’s intent to establish global standards for transparent and participative budget processes and information, which in turn will lead to more sustainable government revenues, better spending decisions, and more effective delivery of services based on clear public demand and feedback.
