Description

1) Objective

The Prince Bernhard Nature Fund was established in 1994 by the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. This funding opportunity from PBNF wants to support small, preferably local initiatives towards the conservation and wise use of nature and our natural resource base. It aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna. Because it is a small endowment fund, it has an independent and non-bureaucratic character. This allows it to actively focus on the smaller grassroots organisations that have difficulty finding funding elsewhere.

Due to the limited nature of our 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 aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna. The urgency of the conservation case is directly related to the priority the project will receive. Therefore, applicants need to always verify the conservation status of the focus species on the IUCN Red List. As a general rule of thumb, it can be said that one is 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) one should not apply, or in case of doubt one can send an inquiry before applying.

2) Eligibility

The PBNF does not support individuals, only registered non-profits.

3) Location

The Fund primarily focuses on work undertaken by organisations located in the Fund’s focal regions: Africa, Asia and Latin America. Organisations from other regions can qualify for support if there is a substantial element of partnership with, and strengthening of local partner organizations. Preferably, their funding goes to non-profit organisations from the regions of support, sometimes in partnership with parties in Europe or North America.

4) Budget

Grants do not exceed €20,000.

5) Application

Applicants are to be submitted online. The next call opens 1 November 2021 and closes 1 February 2022.
