Our Donors

The FIA Foundation has an international reputation for innovative global road safety philanthropy; practical environmental research and interventions to improve air quality and tackle climate change; and high impact strategic advocacy in the areas of road traffic injury prevention and motor vehicle fuel efficiency. Our aim is to ensure ‘Safe, Clean, Fair and Green’ mobility for all, playing our part to ensure a sustainable future.

The Foundation first proposed the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, devised and coordinates the Global Fuel Economy Initiative, and has provided the core grant for both the International Road Assessment Programme and the Global New Car Assessment Programme. Through funding partnerships with the World Health Organization, the UN Environment Programme, the World Bank Global Road Safety Facility and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile we are supporting programmes, pilot initiatives and campaigns in more than 80 countries around the world.

FIA Foundation
The European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), founded in 1991, represents the interests of the eighteen European car, truck and bus manufacturers at EU level. Its membership consists of the major international automobile companies, working together in an active association to ensure effective communication and negotiation with legislative, commercial, technical, consumer, environmental and other interests.
The International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) is a registered charity dedicated to preventing the more than 3,500 road deaths that occur every day worldwide. Their work includes inspecting high risk roads and developing Star Ratings and Safer Road Investment Plans; providing training, technology and support that will build and sustain national, regional and local capability; and tracking road safety performance so that funding agencies can assess the benefits of their investments. iRAP is co-chair of the Safer Roads Pillar of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration.

The European Commission, national governments, automobile clubs and associations, charities, the motor industry and institutions also support specific EuroRAP projects and encourage the transfer of research and technology. In addition, many individuals donate their time and expertise to support the organisation.

National Programmes are typically self-financed by in-country automobile associations, national and regional governments, road safety funds, university research grants or national sponsorship.
