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.


Resources

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 that organises, in particular the annual sessions and other events, advocacy, awareness 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.

2020 was an exceptional year, marked by the world crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. IFGR was unable to carry out the projects that it had planned abroad, thus the expenses were focused on actions performed in France, and on operating costs. The resources allocated but not spent during the year ended were placed in a reserve fund.

In order to consolidate its activities and develop new projects, IFGR seeks additional public and private funds. In particular, in 2021 it set up the Future of Great Rivers Fund to better associate private economic actors with its associative project.
