The Water for Wildlife Foundation is committed to playing a pivotal role in the conservation of wildlife through the development of water resources. WFWF helps bridge the gaps between agencies and other partners to implement projects. We provide grants each year for the construction of water developments for wildlife. Water for Wildlife project applications should show at least a 1:1 cost share match for consideration. Water projects are ranked, and funding is approved based on benefits to area wildlife, need for water, cost effectiveness, cost share partners identified, and public benefit. Funding levels vary from project to project, but typically range from $1,000 – $10,000. The Foundation is encouraging your agency or conservation organization to partner with us to support our efforts of making water as accessible to wildlife as possible.
