Deadline: 1 October 2019
The Fund for Wild Nature is seeking applications to provide 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.
The Fund supports biocentric goals that are premised on effective and intelligible strategies. They give special attention to ecological issues not currently receiving sufficient public attention and funding. The Fund seeks proposals with visionary and yet realistic goals to create tangible change. All proposals must be highly cost-effective.
Although they commend the work of wildlife sanctuaries, wildlife rehabilitation facilities, botanical gardens, learning centers, and habitat restoration, these are beyond the scope of their mission and for that reason they do not fund this type of work. They will only fund media projects that have a clear, significant strategic value to biodiversity and a concrete plan for dissemination of the final product.
- The Foundation funds advocacy, litigation, public policy work, development of citizen science, and similar endeavors. They do not fund basic scientific research, private land acquisition, for-profit enterprises, individual action or study, conferences, or organizations which receive any government funding or support.
- The Foundation does not fund projects outside Canada, the U.S.A, or their federally recognized territories.
- Funded organizations are required to be tax exempt non-profits under the federal tax laws of Canada or the United States (I.R.S. 501(c)(3) or the Canadian equivalent).
