Mission Statement

The mission of the National Conservation Foundation (NCF) is to identify and advance strategic programs and partnerships to deliver conservation solutions through locally-led conservation and to develop the next generation of conservation leaders. The vision of the National Conservation Foundation is to support delivery of locally-led conservation and to create future conservation leaders.

The foundation does this by providing conservation districts and other conservation organizations funding for research, educational programs and public outreach. In fulfilling its mission, NCF has two programs that work to develop the next generation of conservation leaders: the NCF-Envirothon, a high school environmental and natural resources program and competition, and the Next Generation Leadership Institute, a new program to cultivate the next generation of locally-led conservation leaders
