1) Objective

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.

2) Eligibility

The Disney Conservation Fund may only award grants to registered US 501(c)3 non-profit organisations.

3) Location

DWCF supports wildlife conservation initiatives in more than 120 countries worldwide (they have no focus countries).

4) Budget

Grants are generally no greater $5,000, but may be larger depending on the scale of the emergency and response.

5) Application

To receive an invitation to apply for emergency funding, an email inquiry must be sent to Corp.Conservation@Disney.com briefly describing the emergency situation. Upon approval by the DCF team, details are provided to submit a full proposal. Once a proposal is submitted, the Disney Conservation Fund team responds within two weeks to advise whether the request is funded. Application is open all year.
