Fund for Wild Nature Offers Support for Grassroots Environmental Work

The Fund for Wild Nature seeks to provide "small grants to small groups who get things done." The fund provides money for campaigns in the United States and Canada to save and restore native species and wild ecosystems, including actions to defend wilderness and biological diversity.

Funding is provided for advocacy, litigation, public policy work, development of citizen science, and similar endeavors. The fund does not support basic scientific research, private land acquisition, individual action or study, conferences, or the work of wildlife sanctuaries and rehabilitation facilities.

The fund supports bio centric goals that are premised on effective and intelligible strategies. Special attention is paid to ecological issues not currently receiving sufficient public attention and funding. All proposals must be highly cost-effective.

The fund only rarely provides support to organizations with annual budgets greater than $250,000.
Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000 each.
