WRI Annual Report 2019-20: Thanking Our Donors

Thanking Our Donors

Each year as we prepare our Annual Report, we look back with deep gratitude at how the vision and generosity of our donors make our accomplishments possible . We value all our donors and we are very proud to recognize the diverse group of supporters who share our commitment to a more sustainable and prosperous world for all.

European government partners continue to be among our largest donors, providing both institutional and programmatic support. In FY2019, they provided $84 million.

We are particularly grateful to the governments of Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden for their crucial continued support and core funding to WRI. This funding allows us to be mission-focused to address long-term challenges while also helping to fund nascent areas of work and new ideas. In short, it underpins our ability to deliver transformative outcomes to advance our common agenda on poverty alleviation and sustainable development.

We are also grateful to the governments of France, Germany, Ireland, Norway and the United Kingdom for their generous support to WRI’s programmatic work.

WRI’s core and programmatic donors also support a range of impactful global delivery platforms including: Partnership for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G); Global Commission on Adaptation; the NDC Partnership; Friends of Ocean Action and the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy; Water, Peace and Security Initiative; the New Climate Economy; and the Coalition for Urban Transitions.

Foundation support, our second-largest source of funds, remains strong. Notable recent awards include The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for support of the Global Commission on Adaptation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation for its support for developing subnational decarbonization pathways in China. This builds on the MacArthur Foundation’s flexible support for our climate work in the United States, China and India, and complements the foundation’s investment in our green power market development work in India, and most recently our work to decarbonize the U.S. economy.

As we were finalizing this report, The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation’s Board approved a $16 million investment in the Greening the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Donors are increasingly looking to WRI as a key partner for addressing the climate and environmental impacts of BRI, both in China and in the countries where it is investing. WRI President & CEO Andrew Steer’s position as co-chair of the Greening the BRI Coalition and the hiring of Fang Li as the new Chief Representative for WRI China have further solidified WRI’s position.

Support from WRI Board members, Global Leadership Council members, WRI staff, and individual and family foundation donors continues to rise. This is an incredibly important source of flexible and core support. Stephen M. Ross Philanthropies continues to provide vital core support for the WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities. WRI’s new membership group—The Sustainer’s Circle—exceeded 100 members in FY2019.

WRI’s work on science-based targets, water, forests, climate and food remain popular areas for collaboration with our corporate partners. We are pleased to recognize four donors that have renewed and expanded their partnership with WRI: FEMSA Foundation, IKEA Foundation, UPS Foundation and Walmart Foundation. Looking ahead, we will be strengthening our partnerships with Cargill, Inc. and HSBC. WRI’s Corporate Consultative Group (CCG), which now stands at 38 members, brings together the best minds to advance sustainable business practices and provides important unrestricted core support, which allows WRI to remain nimble, further innovate, and maintain open source tools, data and research.

For many years, the Walmart Foundation has been a generous donor and strategic partner to WRI. Like WRI, the Walmart Foundation works at the nexus of the environment and society to create opportunities to improve people’s lives.

Since 2017, the Foundation has provided critical support to WRI’s Food Loss and Waste program, and in the coming year, we are excited to be expanding the scale of this work. By engaging food suppliers and launching a pilot project to shift social and behavioral norms, we aim to reduce barriers to food loss. Separately, the Foundation’s support for the Global Forest Watch platform provides the continued investment needed in new methods, strategies and technologies to monitor and reduce global deforestation.

We are so thankful to have the Walmart Foundation as a trusted partner.

David K. Smoot Sustainability of Life on Earth Fund

Remembered for his voracious reading and hard-working nature, David K. Smoot and his pneumatic conveying company kept the U.S. Patent Office busy with new designs, obtaining over 10 patents in his industry. In his early years as a young engineer at a milling company, David became so interested in how compressed air moves material through pipes that he made it his life’s work. That same passion and curiosity informed David’s environmentalism and his concerns on population, human consumption, climate change and the planet’s ability to sustain life. He also believed we could indeed protect the planet and still have economic growth.

David passed away in May 2018, generously leaving the majority of his estate to fund the David K. Smoot Sustainability of Life on Earth Fund. His longtime friends Marcelo and Patty Silveira were appointed to manage the Fund and reached out to WRI this year to discuss a gift that would support the kind of issues David was concerned about. WRI is pleased to recognize David Smoot’s legacy and his support of WRI’s Global Restoration Initiative, which works to restore and sustain forests for future generations around the globe.
