Evolution of WWF's income from the public sector since 1990.
Public financing makes fluctuates around 20% of WWF's total income; in 2010 (financial year), it was 17% or €88 million. Though co-financing from the public sector allows us to achieve big impacts, support from individual donors still remains our most imporant source of financing.
Incomes from the Public Sector (under GAA - "governments and aid agencies") made up 17% of WWF's total network income in 2010 (financial year).
WWF maintains 34 partnerships with bilateral and multilateral institutions. Roughly 55 employees across the globe service these partnerships, taking care of everything from maintaining strong dialogs, to programme planning, to monitoring and reporting.
