The Alongside Wildlife Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity supported by a grassroots network of people passionate about wildlife. Through research and outreach, we promote science-based solutions for living alongside wildlife in perpetuity. Aldo Leopold said, “There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.” The Alongside Wildlife Foundation represents those of us who cannot.

The Alongside Wildlife Foundation has awarded over $10,000 to wildlife conservation projects around the world. We are now pleased to announce a Request for Proposals specifically for projects that are led by or will increase involvement of minorities and members of marginalized groups in wildlife conservation. Beyond this overarching goal, The Alongside Wildlife Foundation will support projects that involve:

  • collecting data (including basic natural history information) that can inform plans that allow people to live alongside wildlife
  • communicating science to communities with the goal of reducing human/wildlife conflict, and/or
  • implementing science-based strategies for living alongside wildlife populations.


Total Funding Available: We anticipate providing up to $10,000 to 1-2 projects.

Then, e-mail a completed proposal (detailed below) to If you represent a small or international organization include letters written on your behalf by independent institutions. If you are a graduate student, include a letter of support from your advisor.


Due Date: November 8th 2019       


Evaluation: Proposals will be evaluated by a committee formed for this purpose.


The Alongside Wildlife Foundation is supported through a huge (and growing) network of small donors. That makes a recurring donation of $1 or $2 important and valuable to us while we find and fill the important niches overlooked by the huge conservation institutions and agencies.
