Nature conservation to be considered perhaps a stand-alone issue, but today we can simply no longer think this way. Protecting nature is not in competition with any of the SDGs. They all have to be dealt with together.
― Inger Andersen - UN Under-Secretary-General and UNEP Executive Director

  - About Us

Grassroots nature conservation organisations have an integral role to play in enabling conservation that is comprehensive, community-centred and contextual. Upon research and personal engagement with conservation-focused NGOs, we identified problems faced in terms of capacity-building and fundraising, which impacts the depth and scale of their initiatives. Supporting these grassroots organisations with funding and resources would help amplify the impact of their work.

Naturefuture is a platform operated by Earthfuture foundation a not for profit organisation. We recognise the potential for CSR and philanthropy to be a part of the solution and enable impactful long-term conservation work through funding and support. We have an understanding of what funders are looking for while deciding to fund a project. Thus, we have tailored solutions that are a win-win for both funders and NGOs.

How this platform works

Biodiversity and well-functioning ecosystems are the very foundation of our economy and well-being. We believe there is immense potential for CSR and philanthropy to be a part of furthering grassroots community conservation initiatives. Nature conservation needs a better share of the pie.
