Since 1991 the Swedish Club300 has contributed more than $600,000 to bird protection projects all around the world. Projects they have supported include conservation and research on many rare, threatened or little known species like Guerney's Pitta, Hawaiian Crow, Pale-headed Brush-finch, Puaiohi and Sumatran Ground Cuckoo. 

The majority of the contributions come directly from their Swedish members. The foundation is also distributing funds collected at bird fairs, or donated by persons or associations. During the last five years they have on average donated around $8,000 annually. Since  funds are limited the focus is to contribute money to highly threatened or poorly known species.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Only applications concerning projects aimed at birds listed as Critically Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN), Extinct in the Wild (EW) or Data Deficient (DD) on the IUCN Red List of threatened species are eligible for funding. 
  • Ongoing projects that receive or previously have received support from Club300 are excepted from the above criterion.
