CONSERVATION ALLIANCE GRANTS
As a Conservation Alliance member since 2005, we’ve helped fund grants to grassroots environmental organizations that protect the special wild lands and waters in our backyards. We're proud to intentionally extend that support to groups that self-identify as being led by Asian, Black, Brown, Indigenous, Latinx, and other People of Color working to protect natural places.
WHY THE CONFLUENCE PROGRAM?
The Conservation Alliance developed the Confluence Program in 2021 to intentionally connect to historically racially marginalized people for the protection of natural places. After 32 years of conservation grant making, they recognized that their network of grantees and business partners did not represent a coalition of everyone working to protect natural places. The Confluence Program is a first step in those efforts to help create new systems and structures that bring together all of the groups, businesses, and people committed to this work. Each of the four groups below will receive $100,000 in grant funding, as well as two years of resource sharing and communications support.
