The Prince Bernhard Nature Fund was established in 1994 by the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. The Fund's mission is to support small, preferably local initiatives towards the conservation and wise use of nature and our natural resource base. Effectively our Fund aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna. Due to the limited nature of our funding (our grants do not exceed 25,000 Euro), the Fund prefers to act as a catalyzer of larger initiatives, and link its project support as much as possible to larger themes and organizations. Deadline for Applications are annually 1 April and 1 October.
