help us build


Become WorldCitizen

If you care about or feel concerned for elephants, we would like to welcome you as a Citizen of Elephant World. You can join as a ‘Elephant WorldCitizen.’

Contribute a Brick

When you come into the Elephant World building, you will see our Event Space and next to it, the Film Theatre where the Wall of the Wise can be found. The bricks of the Wall of the Wise are engraved with the names of those who have contributed a brick to Elephant World. It is even possible to make a smaller donation, for which we will place a non-engraved brick. The Wall of the Wise will remain there for future generations to observe. Your children, grandchildren, and possibly great-grandchildren can point out your name and say; ‘Look our grandparents helped build Elephant World’. The engraved bricks will be places placed at eye level, between 1 to 2 meters.

Give the Elephant a Home

Anyone who contributes at least € 2500 towards the construction of Elephant World will receive a framed personal certificate. Along with this, a plaque with your name on it will be placed at the entrance of Elephant World for everyone to see.

Join our FoundationGroup

In order to give Elephant World a solid foundation, we want to involve companies, organizations organisations and individuals in the organisational side of our activities. By participating in the FoundationGroup, members will gain insight into our work and projects. Participants of the Foundation Group receive a special status within Elephant World. They enjoy various privileges and are invited to a variety of special activities.

The FoundationGroup is part of our organisation. More importantly, they actively support the protection of elephants through our worldwide world wide projects. The FoundationGroup has been divided into 3 different levels: Founder, Co-Founder, and Builder. They pay a higher annual contribution and receive special privileges.
