Formal membership in Biodiversity Funders Group is open to foundations that have a focus on environmental protection, restoration and sustainability, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and environmental justice.

Applications for membership are reviewed by a Membership Committee; the Committee then forwards its recommendations to the Biodiversity Funders Group Board for approval. Our bylaws stipulate a moderate growth rate: the Board may approve no more than a 10% growth in membership per year.

Biodiversity Funders Group has a sliding scale of membership dues, based on the foundation’s environmental grantmaking.
