Wanted: Large Donors to Help Save Rainforests and Other Threatened Habitats

 

Founded in 1989, the World Land Trust has been successful in saving tropical forests and other habitats in many parts of the world – over 300,000 acres so far. But the Trust lacks any core funding, which is a considerable hindrance to developing new initiatives.

The World Land Trust urgently needs to establish an endowment. We have calculated that an endowment fund of $5million would provide ample for the core running costs AND provide enough funds to ensure new projects could be taken on in a timely manner. One of the problems with land purchase is that generally action needs to be rapid. When land comes on the market, we generally need a rapid response, and need to make a deposit to secure it. An endowment, would produce the income needed to make these downpayments.

Can you, your company, or someone you know help? It’s only 10 donors of $500,000 each or 100 donors of $50,000. Not a lot to secure the future of a cost effective and dynamic organisation.

If you think you can help, please contact John Burton (CEO) on (44) 1986 8974422 or email at jab@worldlandtrust.org
