Biodiversity Funders Group

Founded in 1987, the Biodiversity Funders Group (BFG), formerly the Consultative Group on Biological Diversity, is a professional association of grantmaking foundations whose shared vision is for a sustainable, just and healthy future for all life on Earth, supported by a vibrant and effective philanthropic sector.

BFG is building a community of foundation leaders who learn from each other; share the knowledge that resides in their separate foundations; adopt a holistic, integrated approach to environmental analysis and problem-solving; are well-informed about the current state of scientific, economic and political factors affecting their work; whose short-term strategies are informed by a broad-scale, long-range assessment of future trends; and who actively pursue collaborative endeavors.
