The Monarch Butterfly Fund welcomes proposals from organizations or individuals for activities that support conservation of monarch butterflies or their habitat. Most of our funding supports activities focused on protecting the oyamel fir forests in which monarch butterflies overwinter in central Mexico, and grants are awarded to Mexican organizations and individuals. We may provide limited support to projects in the United States and Canada. Projects must address one of the strategic initiatives of MBF: habitat conservation, scientific research and monitoring, outreach and education, or sustainable development.
