I know that Defenders of Wildlife is widely supported on a national level, accepting funding from private foundations, non-profit organizations, individuals, philanthropists, and celebrities. Currently, however, the organization is not accepting funding from corporations. I believe that the work you do can be positively impacted by support from the business community.

Understandably, for-profit entities such as tuna fishermen, oil companies, power companies, and the timber industry will not likely support environmentally friendly organizations; however, there are many corporations that want to support their communities. It is up to each individual organization to “sell” themselves to a particular sector of potential funding sources. The best way to do this is to embrace the ideals of the people in the community. Defenders of Wildlife has a very good reputation and will be able to easily provide proof of public support. Millions of dollars are bypassed each year by neglecting the corporate community and its ability to support your cause. Evidence
