Prince Bernhard Nature Fund

Grants to conserve endangered flora and fauna in tropical and subtropical regions

Principal Office: Netherlands

Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Conservation of endangered flora and fauna. The Fund makes grants for conservation of endangered flora and fauna in tropical and subtropical regions.

The Fund prefers to catalyze larger initiatives, and it links its project support as much as possible to larger themes and organizations. Activities in education and communication are priorities.

The Fund supports small and preferably local organizations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America — sometimes with external partners, e.g., in Europe or North America.

The maximum grant size is US$20 thousand or €20 thousand.

APPLICATION: PBFN’s website posts an application form in English.

Applicants identify the project and its location; provide information about their organization and the proposed project; submit a budget; and discuss the capacity of local partners and the sustainability of project results.

Completed applications are sent to PBNF by email. There are two deadlines per year.
