The Ellen Fund supports global conservation efforts for critically endangered species. Founded in 2017 by Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, our immediate focus is to secure a future for wild mountain gorillas by building The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund a permanent home.
This project will not only help save these magnificent animals by building on successful field conservation efforts in Rwanda, but will also help the local community find ways to thrive alongside the gorillas.
And while it happens to be Ellen's name on the Fund, one person alone can't do this without the help, support, funding and love of a large community. The Ellen Fund is and always will be a team effort. It's a forum for people around the globe to be able to join Ellen on this journey, an invitation for people to get engaged and walk with us to help our planet. It is, in fact, the only way that we can save these animals… with your help.
Donations are the lifeblood of any organization, and every dollar counts. Until we've completed the campus, all funds go directly towards The Ellen DeGeneres Campus at The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, in order to help save the critically endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda and beyond.
We thank you. Ellen thanks you. The gorillas thank you.
