Our Guidelines

Holtzman Wildlife Foundation offers project support to U.S. public charities that share its values and goals. The Foundation is now accepting inquiries for grants that will be paid in 2020 and 2021. Holtzman Wildlife Foundation plans to make 10 grants of $50,000 to $100,000 in 2020 that impact endangered species through education, advocacy, and repopulation. Projects that are closely aligned with our priorities will receive consideration for support.
