The Christensen Fund (TCF) invites applications from institutions based anywhere in the world for grants within the framework of the “Global Biocultural Initiative (formerly known as: cross cutting)” component of our Program Strategy.

Maximum grant size is $200,000 over two years (larger grants are by invitation only).

The Christensen Fund (TCF) focuses its grantmaking on maintaining the rich diversity of the world—biological and cultural—over the long run, by focusing on five geographic regions including the African Rift Valley (especially Southwest Ethiopia and also Northern Kenya).

Grants within the regional programs are generally directed to organizations based within those regions or, where appropriate, to internationally based organizations working in support of the efforts of people and institutions on the ground.

Grant size is typically in the $50,000 to $100,000 range over one or two years; with larger multi-year grants being available generally to established local partners and per invitation only.

Please type "Application Questions" in the subject line of the e-mail.

Deadlines: Pre-proposals: 31 March (1st half of the calendar year) and 31 August (2nd half of the calendar year).
