We are creative, entrepreneurial and partnership-driven. Working efficiently and effectively, the Fund devotes 96% of its annual budget directly to conservation programs and just 1% to fundraising.
We invite business partners of all size, from leading corporations to budding green entrepreneurs, to join us in a balanced approach to conservation - one that blends environmental stewardship with economic returns. We can help your business make a meaningful and lasting difference in places where your employees and customers live, work and play.
Our ApproachOur approach is collaborative and creative. We work with business—at the pace of business—to tackle tough environmental challenges and bring big ideas and bold conservation solutions to scale. We innovate and take calculated risks to generate significant conservation returns. We listen, find common ground and then lead by example, demonstrating how natural capital can benefit land, water, communities and the bottom line.
Our business partners are attracted to our lean, non-advocacy approach and our impeccable reputation. We’re regarded as efficient and constructive, and as trusted advisors. We are selective with our business partners, finding natural synergies with companies and corporations that share our mission to expand the impact of conservation and advance its benefits to as many American communities as possible.
