Disney Conservation Fund

During its 25th anniversary year, the Disney Conservation Fund (DCF) is proud to continue providing critical support to community-led conservation efforts globally. The fund has been supporting local efforts around the world aimed at saving wildlife, inspiring action and protecting the planet with more than $100 million distributed to nonprofit organizations since 1995.
DCF grant recipients are selected based on their efforts to implement comprehensive community wildlife conservation programs, stabilize and increase populations of at-risk animals and engage communities in conservation in critical ecosystems around the world.

Organizations interested in applying for an Inspiring Action Grant should review eligibility criteria and submit an inquiry form by the deadline (an invitation code is not required for this step). Projects that are a strong fit for DCF criteria will be provided with additional details to submit a full application. Other funds include: Empowering Youth to take Action for Nature, Teaming up for wildlife, and Protecting the Planet
