FNPW Grant Funding

The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife invites grant applications for conservation projects. The purpose of our Conservation Project Grants is to assist in the protection of our native species, habitats, landscapes and cultural heritage.

Grants are available for both field projects and education programs that have a direct outcome for nature conservation in Australia. All proposals are evaluated by FNPW's Projects Committee based on funding priorities, funds available and quality and quantity of projects submitted.

FNPW may support approved projects through untied funds that belong to FNPW, or it may choose to run a targeted public appeal or seek third party sponsorship for the project.

The Conservation Project Grants aim to fund urgent and high priority projects in the following Focus Areas:

Grant amounts vary greatly, from AUD $5,000 to $15,000.

  4. The Project Committee notifies the Board of the evaluation results

Note: Not all approved projects will be funded as FNPW may not be able to secure a sponsor or may not be able to allocate sufficient free funds. If your project falls into this category, your project will be kept on file for one year in case funding is secured at a later time. You will be notified of the status of your project after evaluation.
