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 at NACD’s Annual Meeting for their first in-person work group.

In 2020, NCF programs have adapted to virtual meeting sessions, gathering online from across the nation as they navigate conservation topics during the era of COVID-19. Other programs like the NCF-Envirothon had to be postponed. As we prepare for a new 2021 NGLI cohort and the rescheduled 2021 NCF-Envirothon competition in Lincoln, Nebraska, set to be held in July 2021, 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.
