The Ultimate Conservation Allies Donation Guide: Find The Right Cause For You

While most NGOs collect donations into a general pool, our donation model allows you to decide exactly where you want your money to go. We have 27 Conservation Partners throughout Madagascar and Latin America, each working on unique projects to conserve their area’s biodiversity. We want you to be able to find the Partner and cause that you feel most connected with so that you can feel great about your decision to donate.

Note: As our administrative costs are completely covered by our board members, 100% of your donation goes to your chosen Partner or Appeal. Plus, donations are being DOUBLED up to $7,5000 per Partner by our board until December 31, 2023. That means for every dollar you donate, TWO dollars are being sent to the cause of your choice. Individual donations must be under $2,000 to be matched.

What’s the difference: Partners vs Urgent Appeals


Each of our Partners is a vetted conservation non-profit organization that has proven themselves to be highly effective. By donating to a Partner, you are gifting into their general fund and allowing them to use that money where it is most needed. A list of our Partners can be found here.

Conservation Allies has been catalytic in helping us save one of the most biologically import tropical forests.
