Legal Framework

The legal framework for Environmental Funds includes charters and articles of incorporation that are grouped by common law and civil law frameworks.  The different terms used such as Conservation Trust Fund, Foundation, Environmental Fund etc. – emerge from these different legal frameworks.  We use the term “Environmental Fund” in this Tool Kit in an effort to encompass the many different types of conservation-oriented funds.
