In recent years, NCF has strengthened its organizational identity and purpose by increasing program support, refocusing our mission and vision statements, developing a strategic plan, and introducing a new cornerstone program with the Next Generation Leadership Institute (NGLI).

With past support, NCF was able to create and implement the NGLI, welcoming its seven inaugural cohort members in February 2020 and is recruiting members for its second cohort, scheduled to be announced in December 2021. This program and its curriculum will help grow the next generation of conservation leaders and equip them with skills and resources related to personal, civic and organizational leadership development.

Through your support, NCF has continued to run its Envirothon program, an international environmental and natural resource problem-solving competition that builds leadership experience for high school students. NCF-Envirothon’s mission is to develop knowledgeable, skilled and dedicated citizens who have an understanding of natural resources and are willing and prepared to work towards achieving and maintaining a balance between the quality of life and the quality of the environment.

Your financial support is needed to help keep these programs moving forward.

Every contribution matters. We invite you, conservation leaders, to support the advancement of programs and partnerships to deliver conservation solutions through locally-led conservation and to develop the next generation of conservation leaders.
