Become a
Funding Partner

We are inviting funding partners to join our effort to provide urgent support to conservation and tourism enterprises, in Tanzania and beyond. We are urgently raising $2.5 million to capitalize the Fund’s efforts to provide relief to eligible businesses. From this base, we aim to grow the fund to $25 million + by July 2021 and to expand the Fund’s geographic reach beyond Tanzania.

In order to capitalize the Fund, we are raising non-recoverable grants in any amount from private philanthropic sources (individuals and foundations), public funders (bi-lateral and multilateral), and corporate philanthropy. The Fund is an ideal opportunity for individuals and institutions who:

  • Want to make a significant contribution to protect Africa’s wildlife and landscapes,

  • Believe in the power of locally-owned small- and medium-size businesses to contribute jobs, income, and resources for wildlife conservation,

  • Want to make an immediate impact while also supporting long-term benefits from thriving enterprises and an evergreen, revolving loan fund,

  • Are willing to rapidly contribute philanthropic and grant capital to meet a critical need at a time of crisis.

As a funder of the Africa Land Stewards Rescue Fund, you will play a unique role supporting grassroots businesses, entrepreneurs and communities that steward their surrounding landscapes and wildlife. All levels of contributions are welcome.

Additional Benefits

  • Join a community of like-minded philanthropists and social investors,

  • Receive regular updates from the field,

  • Participate in webinars and other educational initiatives,

  • Engage in the development of a long-term biodiversity and resilience platform,

  • Join the governance of the platform.
