Throughout the year, many WWF offices provided WWF EU with their expertise and advocacy support. 18 network offices
contributed financially to our operations. This support makes it possible to operate, make a real impact in Brussels and to help address issues raised by millions of WWF supporters around Europe and the world.
WWF EU is supported both financially and in terms of policy development by major foundations. We are grateful for the continued support from the European Climate Foundation, the KR Foundation, the MAVA Foundation, OCEANS 5 and the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.
Our effectiveness is enhanced by our cooperation with leading business groups willing to join us in building common advocacy positions. We thank Sky Ocean Rescue for their support over the last three years.
European Commission and Development Aid Agencies
We receive an operational grant from the European Commission through the LIFE Programme and project funding via Horizon 2020, the Development Education and Awareness Raising Programme (DEAR) and the Directorate-General Migration and Home Affairs. The Norwegian Agency for Development continued to provide project funding for our marine work.
