Please make sure you read the funding objectives and specific exclusions for the Environment & Conservation program area before applying.

Making grants that have meaningful impact in the complex area of environment and conservation is a challenging but important aspect of the Foundation’s philanthropy. The Ian Potter Foundation focus their efforts on supporting urban and rural communities to better manage our natural resources and preserve biodiversity in the face of challenges such as land degradation, limited water resources and climate change.

Our Environment & Conservation program area aims to support Australian urban and rural communities to better manage our natural resources and preserve biodiversity in the face of challenges such as land degradation, limited water resources and climate change.

The Program considers large grants ($100,000 and over) within two themes:

  • fostering biodiversity
  • water and/or land management

The funding aims to support the development and promotion of frameworks and strategies to preserve and foster Australia’s future biodiversity and water/land management.

Projects that have a strong volunteer component, work with multiple stakeholders, promote sustainable approaches to agriculture and/or incorporate a strong science underpinning will be viewed more favourably.

The Ian Potter Foundation rarely awards the full amount of any project. Please ensure that you have alternative providers of funding, and that your application clearly considers any possible grant  from the Foundation in this context.  We are unlikely to fund 100% of a project cost.

Applicants must speak to the Program Manager prior to submitting their Expression of Interest (EOI). We strongly recommend you discuss your project with the Program Manager before you start your application.
