The conclusion of the 2013 WWD celebration in Tanzania prompted the necessity to establish a managing body to manage funds for WWD and its related activities. The World Wood Day Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in California to manage funds and grants to carry out the foundation’s missions.
