Starting today, most of BERI’s donors will be listed on our transparency page.
By default, BERI does not publish donor information. Each individual on the list has given their explicit permission for BERI to publish this information.
As a public charity, we feel an obligation to be as transparent as possible. The publication and ongoing maintenance of this list is an important step towards the fullfilment of this obligation. In addition, we’re proud to have the support of so many donors — showing our appreciation in this way is the least we can do.
As of writing, ~93% (by dollar) of our donors are named on this list. For donors who have not given permission, reasons vary: Many were not contacted or did not respond. Some donors simply prefer privacy. BERI respects the right of each of our donors to make their own decisions in this regard.
