Great Apes & Gibbons Grants-Arcus Foundation
The foundation dedicated to the idea that people can live in harmony with one another and the natural world. They work toward that vision through our LGBTQ Social Justice and Great Apes & Gibbons programs, which have distributed more than 2,000 grants to more than 500 organizations in more than 50 countries with an average of tens of millions of dollars.
The ultimate goal of the Great Apes & Gibbons Program is to achieve conservation and respect for the great and small apes. This is accomplished by ensuring that viable populations of great apes and gibbons are protected from extinction and living in habitats that are managed sustainably and integrated with economic development objectives; and that there is international commitment to effectively support the captive care of great apes in sanctuaries and not tolerate their use in entertainment or invasive medical research.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Environmental development of animals life.
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
The grantmaking process typically takes between two and six months from application to decision.
