Eligibility Criteria

  • The PBNF does not support individuals, only registered non-profits
  • The PBNF aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna. The urgency of applicant’s conservation case is directly related to the priority their project will receive. Therefore, always verify the conservation status of their focus species on the IUCN Red List. As a general rule of thumb, it can be said that they are eligible with a focus species that is at least classified as Vulnerable (VU), and receive a higher priority when the species is classified as Endangered (EN) or Critically Endangered (CR). If the focus species is Near Threatened (NT) or Least Concern (LC) they should not apply, or in case of doubt send an inquiry before applying.
  • Due to the small grant size, the PBNF prefers to support projects in developing countries, with a special focus on the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia and Latin America. If applicants are from a developed country they may still apply, but they will receive a lower priority and therefore have a lower chance for their project to be acknowledged.
  • The PBNF always wants to see an applied component of the project. If applicant’s project is purely research-based, they are only eligible if they can make clear how their research results will lead to impact on the ground.
  • Due to the limited nature of their funding, the Fund prefers to act as a catalyzer of larger initiatives, and link its project support as much as possible to larger themes and organizations.
  • The PBNF favours smaller grassroots organisations over bigger international organisations.
  • Other criteria include: Stakeholder involvement and local embedding of the project; An innovative approach; (Economic) sustainability of the project; Local capacity building. Having some co-funding secured is appreciated but not a must.
  • The PBNF does not support projects that address too general or global threats such as climate change, deforestation, malnutrition, poverty etc. Also general development programs that for example aim to improve the quality of life in rural villages through economic or agricultural development are not eligible.
