Ask This is My Earth for funding: Here is how

This is My Earth is always actively looking for new nature conservation projects that have a key scientific and environmental interest.

As you know, ours is a crowdfunding system through which empowered citizens around the world make small (or large) donations, as a gift, individually or in group, and vote on which nature conservation project they support.

Each year the TiME scientific advisory committee approves 3 projects to support. Each project is submitted by a local organization and needs the endorsement of our scientific committee.

At ๐ŸŒฟTiME โ€ข This is My Earth, we are very eager to fund your project, so we ask that if you are an organization with links to local communities, clear principles of transparency and professionalism, and a solid history of biodiversity protection, send us your proposal.

If approved, TiME will help you buy the land you want to protect and promote your organization through our international network.

Fill out the application you will find on our website.

In addition, we have launched a special contest between organizations: if you want your project to be considered as soon as possible, publish at least 3 posts on your social media about ๐ŸŒฟTiME โ€ข This is My Earth is My Earth.
