The Trust for Conservation Innovation helps environmental leaders fulfill their visions by providing nonprofit status and fiscal sponsorship services for innovative conservation projects.
TCI is pleased to welcome the Grumeti Community and Wildlife Conservation Fund to our growing portfolio of Habitat and Species Conservation programs! Based in Tanzania, the Grumeti Fund works to safeguard and enhance Africa’s Serengeti ecosystem in the Singita Grumeti reserve. Grumeti Fund’s programs are diverse and include habitat protection, anti-poaching activities, fire management, the prevention of invasive species that threaten the native ecosystem, environmental education, and natural resource conservation. Grumeti Fund also supports surrounding communities by helping them meet basic needs through the development of clean water systems and by fueling sustainable jobs and resource-based enterprises.
Founded by seasoned international conservationists, the Grumeti Fund is a Tanzanian non-governmental organization. In the United States, the Grumeti Fund is sponsored by TCI and tax-deductible contributions received by TCI are regranted to the Grumeti Fund to support their charitable work.
We didn't have time to incorporate as a nonprofit. We are so teeny, doing so many things, that having an entity taking care of the administrative side is critical. TCI was highly recommended from important sources, and it felt like the best fit. It's a great organization, with great leadership, and a great reputation.
