Our finances

Switzerland, Canton Valais, river Rhone

IFGR has been listed as a non-profit association in the general interest subject to the law of 1901 since July 2017.

The annual accounts of the association are certified by Deloitte, auditors, approved by the Management Board and voted by the Ordinary General Assembly.

The association’s funds are wholly devoted to carrying out projects with constant care taken to optimising its resources to gain maximum impact.


The Association’s resources come from donations made by sponsor companies – including CNR, the main sponsor and founder – and a small amount from the subscriptions of its members (less than €5 k). The Association has not yet called for donations from private individuals, since it does not at present have the capacity to launch campaigns with an impact on the general public.

Distribution of expenses

A large share of the Association’s expenses is dedicated to the projects to the projects it organizes: annual sessions and other events, advocacy, tools to support actors in the territories, awareness-raising actions and international missions.

The other main expense is dedicated to external communication (website; newsletter; editorial partnerships; presence at major international events, etc.). Finally, the other expenses are for administrative and financial management (human resources, legal and tax assistance), and for managing the association and its projects.


To support projects with impact rooted in the territories, in 2021 IFGR set up the Future of Great Rivers Fund.

The aim of IFGR is to redistribute these funds collected from private sponsors to the promoters of projects.

This endowment fund allows private actors to involve themselves concretely in the sustainability of rivers and territories, and thereby play an active role in transition.

The positive reasons for companies to make commitments:

  1. Support projects with impacts,
  2. Enrich their CSR strategies,
  3. Make their employees and stakeholders aware and get them to act
  4. Benefit from an advantageous tax reduction.
