Since the very beginning of WWF Greece, the financial support offered from Charitable Foundations has played an important role in promoting and achieving our conservation goals. In fact, the greater part of WWF Greece’s funding comes from such institutions covering a range of needs from field projects & environmental education to civil engagement & policy campaigns.

Thanks to these Greek and International Charitable Foundations that have steadily offered their financial support we have been able to proceed with long-term planning and the uninterrupted implementation of our conservation program. Many times the support offered goes far beyond finances as it involves the provision of advice, knowledge and moral support.
