The Center for the Opening and the Development of Latin America (CADAL) funds its activities mainly with support from international cooperation, be it private foundations, public cooperation agencies and embassies from democratic countries; and with donations from corporations and individuals.
International cooperation agreements with democratic countries are subscribed after a competitive application and they do not undermine to any extent CADAL’s independence in its struggle for human rights globally.
As a foundation, CADAL complies with all the valid norms and regulations, including the annual presentation of the Memory and Balance before Inspección General de Justicia de la República Argentina, and publishes for the general public an Annual Report in Spanish and English informing its resources and activities organized.
From its inception in February 2003, CADAL has received monetary support from international cooperation coming from National Endowment for Democracy (NED), Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), Ford Foundation, Atlas Economic Research Foundation, the Embassy of Switzerland in Uruguay, Timbro (Sweden), Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), Freedom House, National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI), U.S. Department of State (Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, DRL) and Pan American Development Foundation (PADF).
From corporations, CADAL received the support of Total Austral S.A., Transportadora Gas del Norte S.A., Grupo Roggio, Grimoldi S.A., Zurich S.A. and Sociedad de Inversiones y Mandatos del Cono Sur S.R.L.
CADAL also has an array of different alternative subscriptions to receive support from individuals.
