Trust for Research and Education on the Arms Trade (TREAT)

CAAT receives approximately 25% of its income from trusts and foundations. These grants are made as one-off donations or as part of committed support over several years.

Because of the nature our work, in that we seek to change government policy, CAAT is unable to register as a charity but we remain a non-profit, non-governmental organisation.  The trusts and foundations that donate to us, support the charitable component of our work – our Research and Educational work – and often do so, by making grants via TREAT (Trust for Research and Education on the Arms Trade).

TREAT is a registered charity (number 328694) and although we work closely together, CAAT and TREAT are separate organisations, with TREAT’s objectives being “to promote research into the international arms trade and its effects and to disseminate the results of such research”.

TREAT’s trustees award grants to CAAT as well as other research organisations and individuals (especially academics).

If you are a Charities Aid Foundation account holder and wish to make a donation to CAAT through TREAT, please specify that you wish your donation to be used to fund CAAT’s work. In making a gift to CAAT via TREAT and not directly to us, your donation will be restricted to the Research and Education components of CAAT’s work only and not to our campaigning nor any project work.

CAAT would not exist without its supporters. Each new supporter helps us strengthen our call for an end to the international arms trade.
