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.
IRRI’s grant revenue in 2013 was US$93.52 million, including $12.30 million that was invested in the Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) to carry out activities of the CGIAR Research Program on Rice, known as Global Rice Science Partnership (GRiSP).
In 2013, major donor groups included CGIAR ($39.23 million), CGIAR centers and programs ($2.74 million), national governments ($30.18 million), philantrophic foundations ($11.34 million), international organizations ($7.15 million), the private sector ($1.64 million), and universitites ($0.58 million).
The Institute also receives donations through The IRRI Fund. The IRRI Fund facilitates partnerships and encourages support for rice research in Sinagpore, 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.
