The Intergenerational Foundation (IF) is a registered charity and staunchly non-partisan. It is heavily reliant on volunteers, and requires very little funding. What small-scale funding it does have is drawn from private donors.

IF is a research organisation: it does not lobby on behalf of private businesses. None of the trustees are members of any political party and the volunteers are of all ages with, for example, some in their 20s and some in their 80s. Its financial year end is the 31st December and its formal accounts will be submitted each year to the Charity Commissioners.
