Formal membership in the Biodiversity Funders Group is open to foundations that have a significant focus on environmental protection, restoration and sustainability, energy and climate change, environmental justice and equity, and other environmental and conservation concerns. While a small number of government agencies, public foundations, and corporations are members, the majority of our members are private foundations. Membership is by application only; a committee of members reviews applications and makes recommendations to the board of directors for approval. The Biodiversity Funders Group’s core programs and administration are primarily supported by annual membership contributions, on a sliding scale based on the amount of each member’s environmental grantmaking.  Interested grantmakers should contact us here.

Program partners are funders who are involved in one or more of the Biodiversity Funders Group’s programs or working groups. Depending upon the activity, there may or may not be an annual fee or other criteria to participate.
