Many AZA-accredited institutions as well as governmental agencies, foundations, and corporate philanthropies provide grant, endowment, or sponsorship funding opportunities for animal conservation, science, and education initiatives. AZA Accreditation Standards require that AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums contribute to animal conservation programs. Information about grants provided by AZA-accredited institutions and external sources are provided.
Detailed information about external grant programs and funding agencies, including grant descriptions, eligibility requirements, funding amounts, deadlines, and contact information are provided in this Grant Information Spreadsheet (XLS).
If you know of additional funding agencies or grants that may be useful to AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums, please send this information to AZA's Conservation and Science Department.
