International Rhino Foundation
From its inception 20 years ago, the IRF has protected and conserved rhinos in areas where they are most in need of attention and where conservation action will have the most significant impact. They do this by maintaining a hard-working presence in rhino range countries, and by partnering with like-minded organizations. All of them at IRF passionately believe that what they do will help save these magnificent creatures from extinction. These three things – hard work, partnership, and passion – are cornerstones of everything they do.
IRF is committed to maintaining a lean and effective organization. We maintain only 3 paid staff members in the U.S. Much of the administrative and creative support for IRF is donated pro-bono by the generous institutions and organizations represented on the IRF Board. This structure allows 90 percent of its funds to go directly to field programs in Asia and Africa. The IRF Executive Office is based in Strasburg, VA; the Administrative Office is in a Fort Worth, TX. The IRF is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of 16 individuals from three continents and many major conservation organizations.
The IRF received a four-star rating on Charity Navigator for its transparency and good financial management. It also received The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence.See more
