Conservation Funding

The wellbeing of people is deeply connected to the health of the planet. That’s why the Disney Conservation Fund grants support projects with a holistic approach to conservation – blending both scientific research and community engagement to protect wildlife and their habitats.

To date the fund has awarded more than $30 million to projects in 115 countries through its annual grants program.

Inquiries for the next granting cycle will be considered beginning in October 2016.

Annual Grants Eligibility Criteria

The Disney Conservation Fund provides support to organizations helping animals during emergencies and natural disasters through its Rapid Response Fund.

The awards are capped at $5,000 and can be applied for throughout the year. 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.
