Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI) receives funding from a variety of sources, including international funds, governments of foreign countries, international and/or local organizations and institutions, and private companies and individuals.
IDFI accepts funding only if its purpose is in line with the organization's vision and objectives and if doing so does not negatively affect IDFI’s reputation and independence.
We refuse to accept funding from government institutions, political parties, and/or persons affiliated with them.
Information about the sources of our funding is public. For transparency purposes, we proactively publish information about our projects and their funding on our website, as well as any other relevant websites.
IDFI's Annual Budget:
- FY 2013 - 270 700 USD - Financial Report by Projects
- FY 2012 - 374 000 USD
- FY 2011 - 150 000 USD
In 2018-2023, IDFI was certified as an equivalent to a U.S. public charity by NGOsource. The unique NGOsource ED repository allows US-based grantmakers to access IDFI’s existing legal analysis and ED certificate and issue grants to the organization through simplified procedures.
