I have launched the Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation in order to create an endowment that will enable the programmes I have developed to continue, and new ones to be initiated, so that the fight to make a better world for people, animals and the environment may carry on beyond my lifetime.

Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute
UN Messenger of Peace

The Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation (JGLF) was established in June 2017 by Dr. Jane Goodall DBE.

The intent of JGLF is to build, invest, and manage an endowment to support
programs of the Jane Goodall Institute including Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots.

The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global, community-driven conservation organization in 23 countries that advances the vision and work of Dr. Jane Goodall around the world. JGI seeks to understand and protect chimpanzees, other apes and their habitats, and empower people to be compassionate citizens in order to inspire conservation of the natural world we all share. JGI uses research, collaboration with local communities, best-in-class animal welfare standards, and the innovative use of science and technology to inspire hope and transform it into action for the common good.

The Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots program is a worldwide, apolitical, and non-violent movement empowering young people, kindergarten through college, to become involved in hands-on projects that make a better world. After three decades, Roots & Shoots has groups in more than 65 countries with community projects ranging in focus from animal welfare to environmentalism.
