Gates Family Foundation
The Gates Family Foundation began working with NFWF and other program partners in 2018 to develop and establish the RESTORE Colorado Program in 2020. This program has been established to fund large-scale habitat restoration and stewardship projects across several habitat priorities in Colorado. This conservation partnership supports NFWF’s efforts to expand and improve wildlife habitat restoration while providing opportunities for the proactive management of Colorado public and private conservation lands for the greatest benefit to wildlife and local communities.
The program is also envisioned as a way for the funders to work together and support larger, more impactful projects. For practitioners completing projects on the ground, RESTORE will serve as a single application and will alleviate the need to apply to each of the partner entities separately for project funding.
