The Fund focuses on three main areas of conservation:

1. Saving Wild Landscapes
The Confluence Fund (CF) seeks to be a catalyst for new strategies to preserve existing wild landscapes on both public and private lands, with an emphasis on roadless area protection, migration corridor preservation, free-flowing rivers, and wilderness designation.

2. Making Room for Wildlife
CF supports creative projects focused on conserving habitat for native species such as grizzly bears, ungulates, and native fish.

3. Developing Conservation Leaders
CF supports a variety of initiatives designed to educate and inspire the next generation of conservation leaders, with a focus on the Yellowstone to Yukon region.

The Fund also supports efforts that amplify the voices of local citizen advocates for conservation.
