NNM is a non-profit public company limited by guarantee and a registered charity founded in 2017 with the main charitable object of finding, designing and trialing innovative solutions to curb the illegal international wildlife trade. NNM is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
As part of its objectives, NNM is committed to running a trial of a basic income linked to conservation outcomes in Zimbabwe. The trial will test the central hypothesis that paying communities that border a protected wildlife area a basic income will stop or significantly reduce poaching. We have set up a Basic Income for Conservation Fund to collect donations exclusively for this trial and Donations by Members of the Global First 5000 go exclusively to this fund.
In addition, NNM collects donations via its Website for other projects, such as our demand reduction campaigns.
Making a Donation
All Donations by Members are donations to NNM in support of the Basic Income for Conservation Fund. NNM will deal with the Donations, including payment to Fund Recipients in accordance with these Terms.
Members make Donations through the ‘Global First 5000’ platform online via the Website, by way of PayPal payment. If making a Donation online via the Website, a Member must provide the following information on the donation page of the Website: their name, email address and country of residence. The Member may then proceed to make their Donation through the Website by way of any of the payment methods listed on the Website;
A Member agrees to set up a Recurring Donation to NNM over a period of 2 years in support of its Basic Income for Conservation Fund through the above methods. If the basic income linked to conservation trial does not go ahead due to lack of funding, NNM will donate all funds received from Members to the basic income trial conducted by GiveDirectly (https://givedirectly.org) in Kenya.
Recurring Donations will continue until the Member cancels the Donation by cancelling the relevant recurring payment method on the Website or when the 2-year period expires. Members can renew their membership at that time and continue to make recurring Donations.
Non-Members can also make donations to NNM via our Website. Those donations will be allocated to our other projects as determined by the board from time-to-time. Donations are made via PayPal and no personal information is collected by our Website for these donations.
NNM may refuse to process any transactions (made through the Website or otherwise) for any reason it may decide is appropriate (at NNM’s absolute discretion), including, if in its opinion:
· such transactions are unlawful and/or related to fraudulent activities (and NNM shall report any unlawful or fraudulent activity to the appropriate authorities);
· such transactions have not been properly authorised by the relevant persons;
· the information provided to NNM in respect of such transaction is untrue and/or incorrect; or
NNM does not charge any fees to Members in respect of Donations, other than any transaction fees incurred when a Donation is made (which will be deducted from the amount of the Donation before being transferred to the Basic Income for Conservation Fund).
NNM will only make funds available to Fund Recipients once the minimum threshold for a viable basic income linked to conservation outcomes trial has been achieved. At present, NNM believes that it will need to raise USD $5 million from Members and other donors for the trial to go ahead. Should this amount change, it will be communicated to Members via email and on our Website.
NNM will use funds raised from Members to fund activities directly linked to establishing the basic income trial, such as trial design, negotiating partnerships and designing the research component of the trial. There is currently no fixed timeframe within which NNM will conduct the basic income linked to conservation outcomes trial.
To the extent permissible under applicable law, NNM accepts no responsibility or liability to Members for the manner in which Fund Recipients use any funds received from NNM. NNM does not warrant that Donations will be used by Fund Recipients for any particular purpose.
For all non-Member donations, those will be allocated to approved projects and general expenses in line with the normal operation of our organisation.
NNM reserves the right to change donation processes at any time in its absolute discretion and these Terms will be updated accordingly.

NNM will only be required to provide refunds of Donations where required to do so by law, or where there has been a technical error caused by the Website.
