The Disney Conservation Fund, founded in 1995, is a key pillar in Disney’s efforts to protect the planet and help kids develop lifelong conservation values. The Fund helps scientists and communities worldwide study animals and their habitats, working with qualified and respected non-profit organizations on community conservation, education, science and environmental policies.
The Disney Conservation Fund gives priority consideration to holistic programs addressing a significant conservation need (or projects that are part of a program) which reflect: (1) education and community engagement, including measuring results; (2) sustainable development programs directly connected to protecting species and habitat; (3) scientific field studies on species and habitats (it does not fund ex-situ projects/project components); and (4) a significant conservation action component. The Disney Conservation Fund provides support to organizations helping animals during emergencies and natural disasters through its Rapid Response Fund. Past examples of support include firefighting equipment to control wildfires in orangutan habitat and veterinary care for endangered turtles rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. Funds should support strategies and operations of the wildlife conservation program the organization presented in the application (rather than another program), and/or general
Eligible is any nonprofit organization program that has received Disney Conservation Fund support for five or more years through the annual DCF Inspiring Action grants program.
DWCF supports wildlife conservation initiatives in more than 120 countries worldwide (they have no focus countries).
In 2023, the Disney Conservation Fund is offering a streamlined opportunity for eligible organizations to apply for a two-year conservation grant of $100,000 to advance community-based efforts that protect biodiversity and restore habitats.
Applications are due on November 1, 2022.
