I came to the office this morning and found a report that corporate donations to charity were down 34%. This is certainly not the case for the World Land Trust: Though so far this year the amount donated is slightly down, numbers of corporate donations are actually up -- encouraging considering the current economic climate.
On Monday several of the WLT's corporate supporters met for lunch at the Reform Club, in London's Pall Mall. Among the guests were WLT supporters Sir and Lady Kenneth Carlisle, (Sir Kenneth has been nominated as a new Trustee for the WLT).
The lunch was held by Jonathan Self. Jonathan, a Council Member of the World Land Trust, has already hosted one previously with the idea that putting our corporate sponsors together will create enthusiasms and synergies -- which has definitely proved to be the case.
