International Animal Rescue Foundation Africa’s campaign arm is established as an environmental company although small. Fully compliant and registered F.A.W.S is now fully developed into a “funding only business”.

PLEASE NOTE; All equipment donations will be highlighted in due course however will not see the address’s of those recipients. The reasons for this is to ensure maximum security and not to place the organisation, unit or ranch into harms way. I.e the last thing we want to advertise is what equipment was sent and to whom of which could see poachers with the upper – arm. All private donations are not made public.
Funding African Wildlife Survival will continue to fund only African conservation, welfare and anti-abuse operations with funding and/or equipment. F.A.W.S unfortunately at this time does not support non-African organisations. However this doesn’t mean that INTERNATIONAL ANIMAL RESCUE FOUNDATION has not since founded provided grants to US and EU organisations. These donations are strictly private grants and does not require public disclosure.
International Animal Rescue Foundation retains all electronic receipts however does not publish these receipts as they contain sensitive information such as banking details and addresses. Publishing said data would be a violation of the Data Protection Act. Please be aware this is not a tax form. I.A.R.F.A has willingly contributed to the public information that many “companies” do not. We feel this information is important to the public and to ourselves that also donate privately to ensure we stay trusted and that the public are fully aware of what their money is going towards. Many donations are spent on EQUIPMENT for an array or reasons. Vet care and security being two main.
International Animal Rescue Foundation’s PRIVATE GRANT system is generous and never falls below $5,000 a year. Since founded International Animal Rescue Foundation has privately donated over $30,000 from our private trust. This trust the public does not put into. Our staff do instead. I.A.R.F.A will ONLY DONATE TO TRUSTED organisations whether it be equipment, medicine, foods or more we do not provide to organisations or individuals that we are asked too, do not appear trustworthy or do not fall within our mission statement.
For further information you are hereby asked to contact the Board of Directors at;

This public disclosure form will be updated every six months.
Should we be made aware of anyone interfering with our funding arm we will take the necessary actions to bring them persons to justice.
