Partnerships & Fundraising

To protect wildlife across the world from Vietnam’s illegal wildlife trade, we need to work together with schools, businesses, communities, and individuals from around the globe to sufficiently end exploitation of wildlife for demand in Vietnam. Together, we can eliminate wildlife trafficking in Vietnam and safeguard a sustainable future for Earth’s endangered species!

You can protect wildlife through a partnership with ENV, or by organizing fundraising and awareness events to crowdfund for ENV. Below are some ideas for your next wildlife event, and examples of previous fundraisers!

If you’re interested in speaking to us about your event or about a business partnership proposal, please reach out by emailing internationalcomms@env4wildlife.org.

Artist Jack Gunns from Gunns Designs in the UK created and donated this pangolin artwork for ENV to use on notebooks, stickers, and other items

In 2020, ENV supporter Emma Williams organized the first-ever cycle for wildlife! She cycled over 230 km through the mountains of northern Vietnam, asking friends and family to sponsor her cycle by donating to her crowdfunding page.

In 2019, ENV supporter Brigitte Gemme auctioned an opportunity to book her as a Personal Chef for an evening in support of ENV. Canadian supporters bid on the opportunity to book her cooking skills for their own dinner party or as a gift for someone, and the winning bid was donated to ENV.

In 2021, French artist Dominique Bour auctioned his incredible original pangolin artwork in support of ENV. The winning bid was donated to help ENV protect pangolins and other endangered species.

Sustainable, handmade bamboo straws with the ENV logo were donated to ENV in 2020 by the company Bambew. Now these products are available for purchase on our website in bulk! You can sell them at your store and donate profits, sell them at your fundraising event to increase funds raised, or give them out to friends as presents!

In 2021, an eco-friendly market in Hanoi made ENV their nonprofit of choice, securing 5% of sales from all vendors on the day to be donated to ENV, and asking each vendor to donate one of their items for a raffle prize that ENV sold tickets for, further helping to raise funds for wildlife protection.

For several consecutive years, ENV co-hosted Hanoi half-marathon with Red River Runners and Sporting Republic in Hanoi, Vietnam. Each year, the event benefits a different species such as bear, tiger, rhino, etc.

These events have brought in hundreds of runners from dozens of countries, and significantly contributed to raising awareness about the need to protect wildlife while also raising funds to make wildlife protection a reality.

In addition to all of this support that has helped wildlife, there are endless ways to make sure wildlife is safe from Vietnam’s illegal wildlife trade. Below is a full list of fundraising and awareness ideas in case you’re still looking for inspiration!
