WRI Gratefully Acknowledges Our Donors
WRI’s work is made possible through the generosity of a growing number of partners and supporters that share the Institute’s goals and objectives, including private foundations, governments, international institutions, corporations, individuals, and non-governmental organizations. View the full list of our current donors in the 2014 WRI Annual Report.
Our purpose in each of those relationships is to fulfill our mission, and we are guided in all of them by our institutional values: Independence, Integrity, Innovation, Urgency, and Respect. We neither seek nor accept financial support that would undermine those values.
WRI is mission driven, non-partisan, and independent. We enter into contractual relationships only if they are aligned with our mission and program objectives. To ensure the quality and independence of our research, our publications are subject to internal and external peer review. WRI’s “Ways and Means” document which guides staff on how to operationalize WRI mission, values, and approach, prohibits staff from manipulating research or suppressing research results because they are inconsistent with a desired outcome.
We are proud of the diverse support we receive and report regularly on the sources of our funding. Transparify, the first global rating of the financial transparency of think tanks, gave WRI their maximum five-star “highly transparent” rating.
We are pleased to acknowledge the special role these supporters play in WRI’s successes.
