Annual Review 2012 - (Page 32)

Our partnerships OUR DONORS Investing now for a sustainable future From individual members who make a monthly donation to trusts and foundations pledging millions of dollars, WWF depends on the financial support of those who care about the planet. We’re grateful to everyone who believes that stopping the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and building a future in which humans live in harmony with nature is something worth investing in. Campaign for a Living Planet The Campaign for a Living Planet, which helps fund our 13 Global Initiatives, continues to be the focus of our fundraising efforts. We aim to raise US$100 million over five years to achieve the ambitious goals of these initiatives and catalyse change on an even greater scale. By June 2012, pledges reached almost US$40 million, with several new partners joining the campaign. As ever we are grateful to the chair of the Campaign for a Living Planet Steering Committee, André Hoffmann, for his inspiring leadership, and to other committee members for their active involvement. Honorary Circle The Honorary Circle recognizes WWF International’s top philanthropists and their support. We would like to thank the following members of the Honorary Circle: • Miel de Botton for her ongoing and growing commitment to support our leadership and innovation work in the Campaign for a Living Planet. • André Hoffmann and MAVA for leadership gifts to the Campaign for a Living Planet and continued commitment to WWF. • Kristian Parker and Oak Foundation for leadership in conservation philanthropy and commitment to protecting oceans and combating climate change. • Claudio and Anne Segré and Fondation Segré for their ongoing support and new commitment towards global action against poaching and illegal wildlife trade. Conservation Leaders Our partnerships with foundations and major donors are the bedrock of our work.
