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.

This is an increase from 2011, when total revenue was around $88 million, including $12 million invested in AfricaRice and CIAT.

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.
