The Conservation Fund was founded in 1985 to create environmental and economic solutions for local and national stakeholders. The organization works in all 50 states crafting sustainability priorities, providing bridge capital and sharing expertise in real estate, finance, strategic planning and community development. Together with government, communities and businesses across the country, the fund has protected more than 7.5 million acres of land. It has also established and expanded national and state parks and forests, preserved freshwater resources, launched green entrepreneurs and trained more than 10,000 conservation leaders.

The fund’s priorities include conservation acquisition and finance, carbon and climate, aquaculture and water quality, infrastructure mitigation, green infrastructure and forestry. Numerous programs and initiatives support natural resource responsibility. Its Conservation Leadership Network facilitates collaborative problem-solving, provides sustainability coaching, and trains communities and regulators in on-the-ground conservation and mitigation banking strategies. Its Natural Capital Investment Fund supports market-based solutions across a nine-state region in the Southwest helping locally owned enterprises build businesses that couple lasting job and community wealth creation with sustainability measures.
