Continuation Funding 2017

Continuation Funding programme now open for applications

WFN enables Whitley Award winners to expand their successful work, reach higher and bring about lasting change through Continuation Funding. Applications are open to previous Whitley Award winners only, and grants are worth up to £70,000 over two years.

Often winners go on to become some of the most influential conservationists in their field, with their projects making a difference at the grassroots, national and even international level. Depending on fundraising, approximately £400,000 goes to support our winners in this way each year – making it WFN’s largest grant programme.

We will be announcing the 2017 Continuation Funding winners later this year. If you would like to invest in grassroots conservation heroes by supporting our Continuation Funding programme or are interested in finding out more about our work, please contact our Donor & Communications Manager, Gina White.

To check your eligibility and to find out how to apply, please visit our Continuation Funding page.
