Funds for NGOs, Funds for Indian NGOs,Prince Bernhard Nature Fund
His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was the Founding President of the World Wide Fund (WWF) after its establishment in 1961. He filled this role until 1976, but continued to play a pivotal role in the international nature conservation scene. During his time at WWF he played a crucial role in the creation of numerous nature reserves in Nepal, India, Poland and Ivory Coast, amongst others. He was also involved in the creation of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1975. 
In 1994, he established his own Nature Fund: the Prince Bernhard Nature Fund (PBNF). Because it is a small endowment fund, it has an independent and non-bureaucratic character. This allows it to actively focus on the smaller grassroots organisations that have difficulty finding funding elsewhere. 

The successful projects of today once started with only a dream. Somebody had to give it the benefit of the doubt and finance an attempt to realize this dream and to let it grow. This is what the PBNF does. PBNF grants are often used as seed money for new initiatives. 

Every two years, the Fund organizes a Private Seminar for a selected group of leaders from the private sector, governmental and non-governmental organizations to exchange ideas on new conservation challenges and opportunities. With these seminars the PBNF tries to challenge itself and others to think outside the box and to exchange opinions, thoughts and experiences, thereby stimulating innovation and cooperation within the nature conservation sector

The PBNF has lowered the grant size to US$ 15.000 or €15.000 and has cancelled the autumn application round of 2017. When applying, please pay attention the the new grant heights and deadlines.

When can I apply?

The next application deadline is on 1 February 2018.

You can hand in your application year-round, but after this deadline you will not be able to submit or modify your project proposal. Results will be in around June.

How big are the grants?

Our grants do not exceed US$ 15.000 or € 15.000.

Am I eligible?

To check your eligibility, please take note of the following main criteria:

(1) The PBNF does not support individuals, only registered non-profits

(2) The PBNF aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna. The urgency of your conservation case is directly related to the priority your project will receive. Therefore, always verify the conservation status of your focus species on the IUCN Red List. As a general rule of thumb, it can be said that you are eligible with a focus species that is at least classified as Vulnerable (VU), and receive a higher priority when the species is classified as Endangered (EN) or Critically Endangered (CR). If the focus species is Near Threatened (NT) or Least Concern (LC) you should not apply, or in case of doubt send an inquiry before applying.

(3) Due to the small grant size, the PBNF prefers to support projects in developing countries, with a special focus on the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia and Latin America. If you are from a developed country you may still apply, but you will receive a lower priority and therefore have a lower chance for your project to be acknowledged.

(4) The PBNF always wants to see an applied component of the project. If your project is purely research-based, you are only eligible if you can make clear how your research results will lead to impact on the ground.

(5) Due to the limited nature of our funding, the Fund prefers to act as a catalyzer of larger initiatives, and link its project support as much as possible to larger themes and organizations.

(6) The PBNF favours smaller grassroots organisations over bigger international organisations.

(7) Other criteria include: Stakeholder involvement and local embedding of the project; An innovative approach; (Economic) sustainability of the project; Local capacity building. Having some co-funding secured is appreciated but not a must.

(8) The PBNF does not support projects that address too general or global threats such as climate change, deforestation, malnutrition, poverty etc. Also general development programs that for example aim to improve the quality of life in rural villages through economic or agricultural development are not eligible.

How can I apply?

PBNF is piloting a cooperation with the digital platform PIF world. Therefore, a required step of our application procedure is that you create a page on this platform. This doesn't cost too much effort or time, if you go through all the steps of the application, your page will automatically be created. It’s free and easy to use. In the last step of the application procedure you can edit your page and add some pictures to make it look good. The goal of this is to create a community of species conservation organisations, funds and donors. Besides having a nice page to refer to, this platform gives you access and tools to connect to other people, apply for funds and give updates to your donors very easily. The platform is being built, so if you check back regularly you will see that new features get added every time. Upload a picture or share a story, we love to hear your updates!

Start filling the application form by clicking on the "APPLY" button on the top of the page.
