100% of the money you donate goes to helping education, conservation, animals and much more. The only charity I trust and donate too that I know makes a difference.

For me, the work of the William Holden Wildlife Foundation is absolutely compelling and unprecedented: they link by example children's education, teaching sustainability, environmental education and wildlife conservation. And every donated dollar flows into projects and facilities on the spot. I like it very much to support the WHWF and their projects.

I feel honored to give to this wonderful foundation. This foundation is 100% transparent. All monies received go directly to Kenya. President Stefanie Powers pays for all the overhead. I have no doubt the money donated goes directly to the cause. This foundation is more than just wildlife. Yes, the foundation helps protect the wildlife, but it also teaches conservation and it helps educate the children. There is only 1 earth and we must take care of it. This foundation educates not only this generation but future generations on taking care of the planet.

I am honored to support the wonderful work done by this amazing foundation. They work tirelessly in making our planet better as well as helping both the animals and people in it by preserving and protecting species, building schools and libraries as well as kitchens for students in Kenya. President Stefanie Powers even covers the overhead so all money goes directly to the cause which means a great deal to donors like me!

A very special nonprofit that I can honestly believe in. They are doing amazing things and I am so happy we can help and see where we are helping almost immediately. So many fantastic programs are set up to help rural schools, and children. Animals are a big part. Planting trees to help with the future as well as vegetable gardens . Libraries are full of knowledge. This foundation has done so much in the past 35 years , I cant wait to see what the next 35 will bring.

This organization has accomplished great and significant progress not only in the preservation of wild life in Kenya, but has also educated thousands of students on the importance of keeping
wild animals in their own habitat and learn how humans can coexist with them as well. The foundation's own president, Stefanie Powers, continues to keep William Holden's mission to protect the wildlife preservation in Kenya with as much passion, perseverance and dedication.

The WHWF is an outstanding charity and I am proud to donate to support their mission. I, first hand, have seen the wonderful work they do in schools outside Nanyuki, Kenya. Donations to this foundation help provide kitchens, libraries, classrooms, tree plantings, and desks for children of Kenya so they may learn to conserve and protect the vanishing wildlife of Kenya. The foundation also has programs to sponsor Kenyan students who qualify for higher education. The beautiful education center teaches alternatives to habitat destruction. There are dorms to house up to 50 students at a time who view videos and lectures in the library/lecture hall and they also get hands-on experience at the wetlands project, trout ponds, solar water heaters, solar ovens, bellerive cookers, and bio-gas systems. This foundation is truly amazing and I am a proud supporter!!

This is the Best of the Best cause in Kenya. The William Holden Wildlife Foundation is simply the Best. I have always donated to this cause. Stefanie powers took over when Bill Holden passed away , she has done magnificently to help finish what William Holden started. To help breed wild animals and keep them safe in their habitats and teach the children in schools about the wild animals and how they live... and stop the ever increasing extinction....
