The Fund for Wild Nature is not a foundation with an endowment. Each year, the Fund’s volunteer Board of Directors raises money to grant to grassroots groups that effectively protect wild nature. Why not give directly to those groups? We hope you do. But if you’ve looked around, there are thousands of worthy causes and hundreds of thousands of organizations; it can get confusing, fast. We can help.
You want to support environmental action. You want your donation to go far, and you want it to make a difference. That’s where the Fund for Wild Nature comes in. We volunteer our time and expertise so you can trust that your funds are reaching the front lines of environmental protection efforts. We keep our overhead to a bare minimum with one part-time staff member who works from home. Our grants go predominantly to low budget, low overhead groups, although we occasionally fund special projects in organizations with budgets up to $250,000. We expect results, and we get them.
Our ability to make grants depends upon the continuing generosity of our individual contributors, so we invite you to join our many donors whose contributions are making a tremendous difference for wild nature. Unless you say otherwise, you won’t receive anything from us but a thank you letter, two annual appeals, and our annual report. We won’t give your name to anyone, including the groups we support.
