How about this for a goal? To be the “most admired company in the world.” That’s the stated mission of the Walt Disney Company. And environmental stewardship is one of the essential pillars of that mission.
Disney has long been committed to conservation and founded the Disney Conservation Fund in 1995 to protect the planet and connect kids with nature. Supported by Disney and guest purchases and contributions at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, DCF has proudly contributed $40 million in grants to nonprofit organizations working in 115 countries.
CyberGrants helps Disney administer these grants efficiently and securely. Since 2006, CyberGrants has provided grants management not only for Disney’s conservation programs, but also for Disney’s Employee Engagement and VoluntEARS programs.
Reversing the Decline and Increasing the Time.
Since 1995, the Disney Conservation Fund has:
- Helped to conserve more than 400 species around the world.
- Protected more than 140,000 square miles for people and animals, more space than the size of 2,400 Walt Disney World Resorts.
- Supported education programs engaging more than 3.3 million people in conservation efforts—roughly equivalent to the population of Paris and San Francisco combined.
In honor of its 20th anniversary this year, DCF announced a targeted philanthropic strategy to help protect the planet through collaborations with leading nonprofit organizations that will help threatened animals and inspire a lifelong love for nature in young people. The new initiative, called “Reverse the Decline, Increase the Time,” is aimed at reversing the decline of 10 species through scientific research, community engagement, and increasing the time kids spend in nature.
CyberGrants is extraordinarily proud and honored to contribute to Disney’s admirable successes!
