African Wildlife Foundation maintains its high GuideStar ratings and Better Business Bureau accreditation for executing our mission in a fiscally responsible way. The following documents show how we leverage our funding to deliver programmatic results in the most impactful way.
African Wildlife Foundation is deeply committed to financial transparency and accountability. We communicate with our supporters, donors, and prospective donors by email, postal mail, phone, and other means, both to request contributions to our cause and to provide awareness about AWF's new and existing programs, African conservation issues, and events. These communications help advance our mission to ensure wildlife and wild lands thrive in modern Africa. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board guidelines and Internal Revenue Service guidance, African Wildlife Foundation allocates a portion of our fundraising costs to program services. As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, it is our goal that our donors’ generous contributions are spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.
