WWF Nedbank GreenTrust

The WWF Nedbank Green Trust, co-founded by Nedbank and WWF-SA in 1990, is a mutually beneficial partnership between Nedbank and WWF-SA, which supports nature conservation projects through community-based programmes.
The Trust is funded through the Nedbank Green Affinity Programme, where clients who opt for the competitively positioned Nedbank Green Affinity bank, investment account or insurance policy, can contribute to the Trust at no cost. The WWF Nedbank Green Trust, through the Programme, has helped raise over R150 million for the funding of just under 200 conservation projects.

Applicants wishing to apply for Green Trust funding please note that applications will be received three times a year. Please note the decision making process for 2014:

The Trust has a strong community-based conservation focus, ensuring that natural resources are sustained for the benefit of people.

The Trust is constituted with both a Board of Trustees as well as a Management Committee. The Trustees carry the fiduciary responsibility for the Trust but they have delegated most of their other duties to the Management Committee. Management and administration of the Trust is undertaken by WWF South Africa under the supervision of the Management Committee. The Management Committee also acts as a project approval mechanism.
