Linden Trust for Conservation

Our mission is to help stabilize Earth's biodiversity and ecological processes for the benefit of humanity, by creating financial incentives for governmental and private actors to reduce environmental damage. Specifically, we seek to advance the use of conservation finance and market-based governmental policy in ways that address major environmental challenges.

How We Work

We provide both funding and substantial staff time for the execution of our projects, drawing, as appropriate, on our business and finance experience.  We generally take the initiative in designing the objective of each of our projects and in recruiting both the organizations and the additional funders needed to achieve that objective.  We work on a very small number of projects but are highly committed to each of them.
