Funding & Partners
The success of WWF’s policy work at EU level depends on funding for our critical programmes, a coordinated and supportive network and key stakeholder alliances.

WWF Network

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.

Business Alliances

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.

In the Green 10 coalition of the ten biggest EU environmental NGOs in Brussels; as a member of CONCORD, the European confederation of development NGOs; as a member of the Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, working on climate and energy issues; as part of the Sustainable Europe coalition, the Living Rivers Europe coalition, and as a member of the European Habitats Forum (EHF).
