Funding & Partners
The success of WWF’s policy work at EU level depends on external funding for our priority work, a coordinated and supportive network and strong alliances with key stakeholders and partners.

WWF Network

Throughout the year, many WWF offices provided WWF EU with their expertise and advocacy support. We are particularly grateful to the 18 network offices which contributed financially to our policy and communications activities and campaigns. This support makes it possible for WWF EU to engage in a broad range of policy and legislative processes and represent the voices and concerns of 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 Walton Family Foundation, Oceans 5, the Ocean Azul Foundation, the Laudes Foundation and the Flotilla Foundation.

European Commission and Development Aid Agencies

We receive an operating grant from the EU Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) through the LIFE Programme. In 2023, we also received project funding via the Research Executive Agency (REA); the Development Education and Awareness Raising Programme (DEAR); and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).


Civil Society

WWF EU works with other organisations in various alliances: as a member of the ten biggest EU environmental NGOs in Brussels (Green 10 coalition), the European NGO confederation for relief and development (CONCORD), the Climate Action Network (CAN Europe), the Sustainable Europe coalition, the Living Rivers Europe coalition, the European Habitats Forum (EHF), and the Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature. WWF is also a member of the EU IUU Fishing Coalition and the EU Fisheries Control Coalition.

We also contribute to the following organisations:

Fédération des Associations Européennes (FAIB), Market Advisory Council, North Sea Advisory Council, the Coalition for Energy Savings, Renewables Grid Initiative, Seas at Risk, the European Food Information Council (EUFIC), and the European Environmental Citizens Organisation for Standardisation (ECOS).
