Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources
Grants. The Foundation supports nongovernmental organizations that manage field projects in wildlife conservation and animal rescue. Priority is for organizations that focus on the protection, conservation, and/or rescue of animals – rather than on research, community outreach, and education.
Funding can be used for general support; seed grants; start-up costs; project support; consulting services; and partnership support. The Foundation encourages projects that support women’s rights, and work for women.
APPLICATION: Applications are by invitation only. However, the Foundation accepts brief profiles from grant seekers who believe that their work matches the Foundation’s priorities.
