The Nacey Maggioncalda Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization established to support primate research and conservation. NMF funds global research projects in the areas of primate evolution, ecology, physiology and behavior. NMF also supports conservation efforts that establish a lasting, positive relationship between primates and their human neighbors, in order to improve the health and welfare of both. The foundation awards James F. Nacey Fellowships and supports ongoing research and conservation projects with Goldberg Research and Conservation Grants.
