The Good: Being one of the largest organizations whose purpose is to protect Our Earth and Our Fellow Earth Inhabitants has it's privileges. They seem to have more pull and clout after many years of experience, being based in DC, and have a gaggle of seasoned lobbyists. 83% of all donated monies goes to a cause close to my heart...

The Bad: Being so large they are definitely more wasteful than their smaller counterparts. Executive pay is much too high and the advertising expenses are too high (wish they would cut my mailings in half as I already plan to donate yearly). 17% is too high for "other" expenses.

In my book the good outweighs the bad and I will continue to donate but also look for, and participate with, smaller local organizations as well.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

protect Our Earth and Fellow Earth Inhabitants.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

cut executive pay and mailings to current donors. Get the 83% actual used donation number closer to 90%

I became aware of the need for environmental protection and change in the 1980's. I was aware of some of the big environmental groups, but what caught my attention with WWF was when they purchased land in the rain forest in South America to help stop the slash and burn culture. Since then I have donated to them because what better way to help the earth than to protect the very ground and plants that grow from it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The information I receive about the environment worldwide. The creativity of WWF when reaching out for publicity and support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Better protect the earth and the nature that thrives off her. For example, more rain forest protection and more park rangers in African countries to prevent poaching of unique and beautiful animals I have only seen in a zoo.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

I first notice this foundation back in 1990. I was in sixth grade and our school was taking an interest in our environment. At the end of each year, each 6th grader was to propose a mural suggestion for the rather large mural that would be painted and hung in the class room. This had been a tradition for many years. My mural proposal was completely influenced by my membership to the World Wildlife Fund. I drew 7 endangered species, one from each continent, to represent the fragility of our planet. My proposal won the vote. The World Wildlife Fund has been loyal to the planet. Working hard to educate us all on the reality of extinction and how we can prevent it. For nearly 50yrs, they have creatively inspired us all to do our part to protect, clean-up, and care for our planet and all of whom reside upon it. It is the most widely known and respected conservation group and has proven to be effective in all of its efforts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are very well organized. They keep you informed of everything they do in an entertaining newsletter. Their website is easy to navigate and informative. And the deeds they inspired were very rewarding spiratually for me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have never met anyone who was directly connected to the organization. But I have read of their adventures and find them all to be very genorous of their time and they talents.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save us all.

Ways to make it better...

If I had become a zooologist and volunteered for them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Laziness, ignorance, greed. The same challenges our planet faces.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Of all the organizations that work for the planet, I have no doubt that this one will follow thru with its promises. That the World Wildlife Fund will stand strong and do their best. Just check out their website and you will agree!

I am extremely impressed with World Wildlife Fund. They function with high quality on so many levels - they have fantastic marketing and innovative events (such as EarthHour)to create awareness, they are donor responsible (they communicate well with their donors), and they are completely on target with their activities which match their mission. Their commitment to helping our planet is huge!

I became a member after watching the movie, the 11th Hour, a documentary by Leonardo Dicaprio. WWF had nothing to do with this film, but that film opened my eyes to what's going on in this world. I did some research and wanted to try and help and WWF caught my attention. I've been honored to donate 16 dollars every month for the past 2 years and wearing my WWF shirt with pride. I get many looks when shopping with my WWF bags, and know people care. As a college student, working to pay bills and to support my 2 cats, it's hard to come up with enough money every month. But I know with WWF, and where my money goes to them, that I could never take away my donation every month, even if I was near broke. I love getting newsletters every week, and being a facebook fan keeps me up to date with WWF and their research. I'm 22, and I've been a WWF supporter for 2 years now, and will continue throughout my lifetime. I owe a lot to WWF for what they have done and are pursuing to do.

Getting the name out there and walking around Pittsburgh with my WWF shirt and WWF grocery bags.

Ways to make it better...

the shop was cheaper. I want to wear as much WWF clothing as possible, but it costs 50 dollars just to get a hat.
