My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for World Wildlife Fund, Inc., Washington, DC, USA
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
protect Our Earth and Fellow Earth Inhabitants.
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%
