The Spirit of Big Five Foundation believes that small grants placed in the hands of hard-working and effective organizations can make a huge difference. It is focused on providing small grants (from $3000-$10,000) annually to projects and organizations that meet the basic tenets of sustainable development, demonstrating:

  • Successful community development, support for nature conservation, promote environmentally sensitive operations, or help to safeguard cultural heritage consistent with the principles of sustainable tourism.
  • The Spirit of Big Five Foundation will give priority to funding support for projects in countries and regions in which Big Five Tours & Expeditions operates.
