The Ethics Institute (TEI) is a not-for-profit organisation receiving its income from a series of sources:

TEI was started through a substantial funding grant from the Merck Company Foundation - with the intention that TEI will become self-sustaining through other income streams in the longer term. This grant came to an end in 2010. TEI is seeking to secure further grant funding for various ethics capacity building initiatives.

Project funding
We increasingly receive funding from international donors for ethics-related projects in South African and on the rest of the continent.

Donor members include Exxaro and Medi-Clinic Ltd.

TEI offers both individuals and organisations membership at the cost of an annual subscription fee.
