Prospect Burma is registered in the United Kingdom as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). It is regulated by the UK’s Charity Commission, and by UK and English law.

American Friends of Prospect Burma is a 501c(3) charitable organization incorporated in the State of Illinois.

Prospect Burma’s Patron is His Majesty King Charles III. He kindly agreed in 2016 to become our Patron, taking over from Viscount Slim, who had been our Patron since Prospect Burma was founded in 1989. Our Vice Patron is the author, academic and philanthropist, Daw Kyi Kyi May.

Our work is overseen by a board of trustees, based in the UK, Myanmar and USA. They hold legal responsibility within UK law for Prospect Burma’s activities including fundraising and programme delivery. Find out who our trustees are, and the expertise they offer.

Our Interim Executive Director is responsible to the trustees for delivering Prospect Burma’s activities. He manages the staff in our two offices in London and Yangon. Find out more about¬† the team (Names and photos of some staff are redacted due to the situation in Myanmar).

Each year, our income and expenditure is outlined in an annual financial report submitted to the Charity Commission. Each year we also publish an accompanying impact report which describes the benefits we deliver in a more accessible format.
