The Alaska Conservation Foundation protects Alaska's natural environment and the diverse cultures and the way of life it sustains. It does this by promoting conservation philanthropy and by strategically directing resources to conservation leaders, organizations, and initiatives.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from grassroots organizations to its Discovery Grants program, which awards grants of up to $2,000 to Alaska-based grassroots organizations to foster a more effective and conservation movement in the state, with a focus on strengthening its leadership base, encouraging collaboration, and helping leaders and organizations navigate the changing political and economic climate.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization engaged in conservation advocacy; be based in Alaska or have an Alaska-based program; and be engaged in Alaska conservation. Preference will be given to organizations with an annual operating budget under $200,000.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and reviewed every two months.
See the ACF website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
