Welcome to the DRI Foundation web site. For over 25 years the Foundation trustees have worked with DRI benefactors to support environmental science research aimed at improving people's lives throughout Nevada, the nation, and the world.
The DRI Foundation was formed in 1982 as a not-for-profit, 501 (c)(3) to financially support the mission and vision of DRI. The DRI Foundation's mission is to maximize DRI's global environmental impact by securing necessary funding, promoting DRI to multiple constituencies and expanding DRI's reach.
