WDM's structure | World Development Movement

Join us in the fight for economic justice and an end to global poverty.

WDM's structure

World Development Movement is a company, World Development Movement Ltd (no. 209819) and a charity, World Development Movement Trust (registered charity number 1064066). 

WDM Trust, the charity, was historically restricted in the amount of campaigning it could do by charity law. Following changes to charity law, WDM Trust is now largely unrestricted in the kind of campaigning it can do as long as it remains non-party political. 

Individuals who support WDM Trust with a donation of £24 or more a year are eligible for membership of WDM Ltd. Members have voting rights on our constitution and in elections and are invited to attend the annual general meeting.

Donations to WDM Trust made by UK taxpayers are eligible for Gift Aid tax relief from HMRC, meaning gifts to WDM Trust are worth 25% extra. These donations fund all aspects of our campaigns from report printing, staff costs and lobbying to public stunts and network building.

WDM is a movement of people who want to challenge the root causes of global poverty and injustice. Everyone who takes a campaign action, becomes a member, supports us with financially or joins a local group is helping us win justice for the world’s poorest people.
