Bioversity International is a research-for-development organization, registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the U.S. and a registered Charity (No.1131854) in the U.K. Every dollar we receive goes directly to reducing poverty and hunger, improving the nutritional status and livelihood of farmers and consumers’ health, and ensuring that production is environmentally sustainable.
Many partners believe in and support our work through financial contributions which are critical to deliver our mission. We receive both unrestricted and restricted funding - with the latter targeting specific research activities - which enable us to operate and achieve our targets. Our total revenue in 2015 was US$ 36.26 million.
One of the ways Bioversity International receives funding is through the CGIAR Fund. The Fund is a multi-donor, multi-year funding mechanism that provides strategic financing to support agricultural research. It finances research aligned with the Strategy and Results Framework developed by the Consortium of CGIAR-supported centers and endorsed by the Funders Forum to establish common goals, objectives and results for the CGIAR partnership.
