WAMBA are now registered as a non profit beneficiary with 1% For The Planet. Members companies donate at least 1% of sales to nonprofit partners, like WAMBA, who have been vetted for participation in the 1% for the Planet network.

WAMBA would like to thank Perth based company eTool who are our first donors through this scheme. In fact it was their idea that we sign up. Not only that but the staff have made it a condition of their donation that they come out and help on a build/maintenance day!

If your company, or a company that you deal with, donate their profits through 1% For The Planet, or might be interested in doing so, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with WAMBA.
