Support Land Securement

How?

Carefully!  All donations to the fund are dedicated exclusively to supporting strategic land securemen (purchase price and associated acquisition costs). ICFC occasionally provides bridge finance for urgent opportunities. In allocating fund for land securement, ICFC considers:

  • The presence of threatened and endemic species and rare or threatened ecosystems;
  • The prospects for the area to maintain ecological integrity long term;
  • Satisfactory management plans, and the capacity of the field partner to provide capable management and protection long term;
  • Buy-in from local communities;
  • Risk of all kinds.

ICFC is able to apply 100% of your donation to land securement.
