Funds Raised Through Challenge Grant Will Help Bolster Conservation of Endangered Wildlife and Wildlands
In a tremendous show of support for the world’s wildlife and wildlands, the Sangreal Foundation this week made a $10 million matching gift to Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC). The 2017 challenge grant will match donations to GWC dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of contributions to GWC’s critical mission of conserving the diversity of life on Earth.
“With this incredibly generous matching gift, Global Wildlife Conservation has an unprecedented opportunity to vastly increase our important work around the planet, safeguarding the species and ecosystems that are critical to a healthy, thriving Earth upon which we all depend,” Wes Sechrest, GWC chief scientist and CEO, said. “Brian Sheth and his Sangreal Foundation have demonstrated time and again a genuine long-term commitment to lead in environmental philanthropic giving. This support directly translates to important conservation wins on the ground.”
