Dr Simon Berrow was appointed Project Officer in March 2000 and funding was provided for the initial 12 months to establish the Foundation. Funding is now obtained from grant applications for research and education on a project basis.

The SDWF is based at the Shannon Dolphin and Wildlife Centre Centre at Merchants Quay in Kilrush. This Centre is owned by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaelteacht and the SDWF are provided with office space and a large area for educational materials and facilitating groups such as schools and special interest groups. The SDWF were awarded funding from the West Clare LEADER Group to develop educational and interpretive materials in the Centre, which was opened in June 2004 by Sile de Valera TD.
