The Conservation Alliance: We Keep It Wild

For over 30 years, The Conservation Alliance (TCA) team has worked to bring their vision to life; a planet where wild places, wildlife, and people thrive together.

They work to achieve this goal and fulfill their mission through a variety of programs and advocacy efforts, ultimately connecting business and outdoor communities to fund and advocate for the protection of North America’s wild places.

The Confluence Program

The Confluence Program(Opens in a new window), currently in its second year, works to increase support for organizations led by historically racially excluded community members. The four grantees chosen by the Confluence Program advisory committee are awarded two installments of $50,000 over a two-year period. By supporting these groups, TCA hopes to increase representation in the conservation and outdoor industries.

The four grant recipients selected in 2021 are Apache Stronghold, Monumental SHIFT Coalition, Southeast Alaska Indigenous Transboundary Commission(Opens in a new window) and Valentine Conservation Community Project. The applications for the 2022 cohort are currently under review – stay tuned!

In addition to the Confluence Program and other grant award opportunities, the Conservation Alliance’s We Keep It Wild Campaign is underway.
