Apply for a Grant from the Fund for Wild Nature
Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from the Fund for Wild Nature. The Fund provides small grants for North American campaigns to save native species and wild ecosystems, with particular emphasis on actions designed to defend threatened wilderness and biological diversity. We support biocentric goals that are premised on effective and intelligible strategies. We give special attention to ecological issues not currently receiving sufficient public attention and funding. We seek proposals with visionary and yet realistic goals to create tangible change. All proposals must be highly cost effective.
Examples of activities we fund include advocacy, litigation, public policy work, and similar endeavors. We do NOT fund basic scientific research, private land acquisition, for-profit enterprises, individual action or study, conferences, or organizations which receive government funding or support. Although we commend the work of wildlife sanctuaries, wildlife rehabilitation facilities, botanical gardens, zoos, learning centers, and habitat restoration, these are beyond the scope of our mission and for that reason we do not fund this type of work. We will only fund media projects that have a clear, significant strategic value to biodiversity and a concrete plan for dissemination of the final product. We strongly recommend reading about our grantees’ work to find parallels, if any, with your work. View recent grantees and past annual reports for more information.
