The 1001 Club: A Nature Trust is a trust which helps to fund the World Wide Fund for Nature. It was established in 1970 by the then head of the WWF, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, with help from Dr. Anton Rupert, the South African entrepreneur. They persuaded 1001 individuals to join the club, where each member would contribute US $10,000 to the trust. The resulting $10 million fund helps to towards the WWF's basic costs of administration.
