We are currently accepting project proposals. Detailed instructions can be found in a document prepared for this call for proposals and can be found on the right-hand side of this page. This document lists eligibility criteria and describes the submission process.
Project proposals must focus on in-situ conservation of globally threatened trees and must be submitted using three template forms (project proposal, budget and logical framework) that can be downloaded from this page. Incomplete proposals will not be reviewed.
Proposals can be submitted in French or English. Forms and instructions are available in both languages. For sending proposals please use the form below.
The Foundation can fund projects implemented all over the world but will favour areas with high biological diversity as well as areas where needs are important and funding opportunities are limited.
Only projects aiming at improving the conservation status of globally threatened tree species listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened species are eligible. Threatened species include those listed as Vulnerable (VU), Endangered (EN) or Critically Endangered (CR) (www.iucnredlist.org). Therefore, applicants must check the status of their target species at www.iucnredlist.org to ensure that their project is eligible. If a species is considered as threatened but the assessment is not yet published on the Red List website, detailed additional information justifying a VU, EN or CR status must be provided. Priority will be given to projects targeting CR and EN species. Projects targeting VU species will be accepted when immediate investments will be necessary to stop a rapid decline.
We define trees as plant species presenting a single trunk at least 2 meter high.
Threatened tree species will be the main key performance indicators of the projects. Projects proposing a positive impact on other threatened species and associated habitats will be favoured (collateral benefits). The Foundation will favour projects of global relevance (globally threatened species) versus projects protecting species locally or regionally threatened.
