The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is a significant philanthropic endowment established to do the following: (1) provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives; (2) recognize leaders in the field of species conservation; and (3) elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate. The Fund’s reach is truly global, and its species interest is non-discriminatory. It is open to applications for funding support from conservationists based in all parts of the world, and will potentially support projects focused on any and all kinds of plant, animal and fungus species, subject to the approval of an independent evaluation committee.
The Fund has been established to provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives, recognize leaders in the field and elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate. Its focus is global and eligibility for grants will extend to all plant, animal and fungi species conservation efforts.
Anyone directly involved in species conservation can apply to the Fund for a grant.
The Fund is open to applications for funding support from conservationists across the globe.
The Fund maximum grant size is $25,000, and any application asking for more than this from the Fund will be rejected.
The application process is conducted online. All applications must be submitted in English and budgets must be submitted in US Dollars. There are three grant rounds per year, and generally applications received before the end of February will receive a reply at the end of April or early May. The next submission deadline will be the last day of June, (and applicants will receive a reply in September). The final round of grants in a given year usually has a deadline of the end of October, with applicants receiving a response in late December of the same year or early January of the following year. Around 10% of applications tend to receive grant funding.
