FINANCES &
EFFECTIVENESS

The WILD Foundation is a smart choice for giving.

Our numerous accomplishments for wilderness, wildlife and people world-wide are only possible with the support of generous donors like you! We have a proven track record of effectiveness and consistently receive a rating of 4 stars by Charity Navigator each year. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that our organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Only 8% of the charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that WILD Foundation outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets WILD Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness

Our model of generating leverage with the resources and talents of many partners world-wide allows us to target our efforts efficiently for maximum impact. Donors to WILD invest in horizontally-powered, on-the-ground work – not institutional growth. While many can claim efficiency, our operating model relies upon it, and our local and global relationships require it.

        *Management Note: Generally accepted accounting principles for non-profit organizations require contributions to be recorded in the year the contribution is received or pledged.  WILD received a large amount of funding in 2006 that was designated for expenditure in 2007, hence the significant negative change in net assets reflected in the 2007 reports.
