Tiffany & Co. Reaches $10M in Donations to Wildlife Conservation Network Through its Save the Wild Collection
NEW YORK, NY— Since launching in 2017, the collection in its entirety has donated 100% of profits to the WCN who has provided critical funds for more than 450 on-the-ground conservation projects to protect elephants, lions and rhinos.
The network provides funds for the most trusted, effective programs in the field and has supported a total of 156 grantees in dozens of countries to protect these endangered species. Funds raised have been allocated wherever the need is greatest for each of these three endangered species—from anti-poaching efforts to ivory and horn demand reduction initiatives—across their respective WCN Wildlife funds including the Elephant Crisis Fund, Lion Recovery Fund and Rhino Recovery Fund.
Tiffany has had an enduring relationship with nature, which is both the ultimate inspiration for its designers, and the source of the precious materials that give life and form to their iconic collections. As a company with important ties to Africa, Tiffany & Co. is proud to support the well-being of Africa’s people and protecting its wildlife through these efforts. This milestone builds on Tiffany & Co.’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and conservation, including 20 years of grantmaking from The Tiffany & Co. Foundation.
