Kristine and Douglas Tompkins launched their conservation initiatives as venture philanthropists, investing their funds, time, and energy into rewilding a healthy planet with big, wild, and connected landscapes where animals and plants can thrive—all in an effort to confront climate chaos and the global extinction crisis.
Our supporters are the heart of everything we do. Tompkins Conservation supports our offspring organizations in Chile and Argentina, as well as emerging conservation initiatives worldwide. Your contribution can make a crucial difference toward a wilder world.
Tompkins Conservation no longer accepts charitable contributions directly. If you would like to support our work, you can make a gift (below) to the Tompkins Conservation Project Fund at Re:wild, which is now the fiscal sponsor for our organization.
"If anything can save the world,
I'd put my money on beauty."
— Doug Tompkins
CONTINUING THE TOMPKINS LEGACY OF PHILANTHROPYTo facilitate planned giving and legacy gifts in support of enduring conservation efforts, Douglas and Kristine Tompkins and Tompkins Conservation have set up two donor-advised funds—the Tompkins Conservation Fund and the the Tompkins Conservation Fund and the Douglas R. Tompkins Wild Legacy Fund—at the Marin Community Foundation (MCF), a grantmaking public charity that has operated for more than three decades and partners with more than 500 individuals and families in their giving efforts.
