Welcome to the Grumeti Community and Wildlife Conservation Fund!

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.

It's about being able to be versatile and get started really quickly. If I have to go out and start my own nonprofit, it takes a lot of time and money to be able to operate across borders. Having a fiscal sponsor is an efficient means for moving our grant money to different countries outside the U.S. TCI offers a really sound package of services for a competitive price. For a reasonable fee, we can take donors' money and get right to work. More resources get on the ground and get on the ground sooner.
