Donate to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) is hard at work tackling some of the most pressing environmental challenges impacting endangered species and threatened ecosystems in every corner of the planet. Since our formation in 1998, we have supported and funded more than 128 cutting-edge environmental protection, advocacy and conservation programs. Our reach now supports projects on almost every continent and in every ocean.


We can’t do it alone, and you can join with others around the world to expand out work — protecting marine ecosystems, defending precious forests, empowering indigenous tribes to protect their lands, and helping endangered species from Africa to South America by stopping poaching and ending the illegal wildlife trade. Working hand-in-hand with our partners on the ground, local communities and leaders around the globe, we are making a difference.

Donate Today to our LDF donor-advised fund at the California Community Foundation, rated 4 stars on Charity Navigator.

We are extremely proud of all that we have achieved, but the threats facing our planet remain enormous – and time is running out. We can move our planet in the right direction, and thankfully many have stepped up in support of our mission. Together we can help protect our planet and all the species that call it home.
