IRRI is a nonprofit organization, which means that any funds we receive go directly to our mission toward reducing poverty and hunger, improving the health of rice farmers and consumers, and ensuring that rice production is environmentally sustainable.
We receive financial support from many donors around the world. These include governments, philanthropic foundations, the private sector, international agencies, universities, and through CGIAR.
Donor investment is fundamental to achieving our goals.
Despite CGIAR Fund budget cuts in 2016, IRRI’ s financial position remains stable, with total assets of USD 78.47 million compared with USD 80.36 million in 2015. This drop of USD 1.90 million is offset by a corresponding increase in liabilities and decrease in net assets. The liquidity and long-term stability indicators continue to remain above CGIAR benchmarks. IRRI had a net deficit of USD 2.67 million.
In 2016, IRRI’s grant revenue was USD 65.76 million, which includes USD 5.29 million of CGIAR GRiSP Windows 1 and 2 funds for our partners—AfricaRice and CIAT. IRRI continues to successfully attract significant new investments to further its mission as well as to help cover gaps due to CGIAR Fund budget cuts in 2016.
The Institute also receives donations through The IRRI Fund. The IRRI Fund facilitates partnerships and encourages support for rice research in Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Asia, and around the world. Read more about The IRRI Fund.

In 2012, IRRI's Communication and Publishing Services unit streamlined the format of the annual report with the printed version now limited to a brochure format summarizing research highlights, milestones, and financial information.
The most interesting stories, composed of articles from Rice Today magazine and media releases, are highlighted to give the reader a full view of what IRRI's been up to in the past year.
Currently, IRRI also takes the lead in drafting the GRiSP annual report, having produced the first two installments in 2011 and 2012 in a traditional publication format.
