Support CPSG

CPSG has assisted in the development of conservation plans for more than 260 species. Bolstered by our commitment to collaboration and sound science, CPSG helps the people behind conservation efforts come to agreement on what to do to help a species. As a result, conservationists agree on a strategy around which to base their efforts, communities provide input into the process and outcomes, and many species around the world are better off.  

As the planet struggles to maintain biodiversity, the demand for our conservation planning expertise is intensifying. In order to fulfill our mission, we rely on people like you to contribute and support our work. Your support enables us to continue our efforts to preserve nature, and without it we could not continue our work to save threatened species.

By supporting CPSG, you become part of a global conservation partnership that achieves results that go beyond what individuals and institutions can do on their own. CPSG is supported by a non-profit organization incorporated under the name Global Conservation Network.


Thank you for your interest in supporting CPSG / GCN. You can donate to GCN/CPSG by clicking the Paypal "Donate" link below or by mailing your contribution to our offices.

You may  also choose to donate stock.This is an excellent giving option for stock that has been held for at least one year and that has appreciated in value. Giving stock that qualifies offers a two-fold tax savings for US tax payers:

  • Avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock
  • US tax payers may receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift

Stockbrokers require delivery instructions in writing. If you would like to make a gift of appreciated stock to GCN, please contact Elizabeth Townsend at for a sample letter for your broker to initiate a transfer. 

The finances of CPSG are managed by the Global Conservation Network, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization with the purpose to support the conservation work of CPSG and its partners. Donations made to CPSG are tax-deductible within the the guidelines of US law.


None of our important work would be possible without our generous and loyal donors. CPSG donor institutions and individuals are recognized in all CPSG publications and on the CPSG website. They receive a copy of our Annual Report, highlighting CPSG’s work and successes. Institutional donors also receive a slide-set of these successes, and are invited to add their logo to these slides and use them in presentations to their staff, board, and community to highlight the conservation contributions their institution makes through support of CPSG.
