NRGI Donor Partners
The Natural Resource Governance Institute receives contributions and grants from foundations, governments and international financial institutions. We are extremely grateful for the generous support of our past and present donor partners.
NRGI takes seriously our commitment to transparency and the need to practice what we preach. We disclose additional financial information beyond what is traditionally made available in annual financial statements and IRS tax forms. With support from and in consultation with our donor partners and Governing Board, we publish information for contributions and grants of $100,000 or more. In total, these account for more than 90 percent of NRGI’s annual contributions.
Please see the links below for contributions and grants in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
In parallel, we are reviewing the International Aid Transparency Initiative requirements with the ambition of taking additional steps toward transparency.
