About Centre for International Governance Innovation:
The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) was founded in 2001 by Jim Balsillie, former co-CEO of RIM (Research In Motion), with support from a number of strategic partners, including the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario. CIGI is an independent, nonpartisan think tank based in Waterloo, Ontario that conducts research, holds conferences, publishes working papers and books, and makes policy recommendations on international governance issues.
CIGI conducts research in three program areas: Global Economy, Global Security and Politics, and International Law. The International Law Research Program was launched in November 2013. CIGI forms networks, advances policy debate and generates ideas for multilateral governance improvements through an active agenda of research, events and publications. CIGI's work in this area helped lay the groundwork for the G20 Leaders' group. CIGI has collaborated with various organizations throughout the world to conduct research and organize conferences.
In F2014, CIGI received a $30m donation from a private donor, increasing revenues to $43m. In F2014, fundraising and administrative costs were 9% of total revenues (less investment income). Due to the lack of donations in F2013, fundraising and administrative costs exceeded non-investment income. CIGI has funding reserves of $155m (including donor-endowed funds of $56m) which cover annual program costs 16 times (14.5 times excluding donor-endowed funds).
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by CIGI. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
