The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor businesses that seeks to protect threatened wild places in North America for their habitat and recreational values. As a group of outdoor industry companies, the alliance recognizes its responsibility to help protect the wild lands and waterways on which our customers recreate and wildlife thrives.
To that end, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of projects that seek to secure permanent and quantifiable protection of a specific wild land or waterway. Priority will be given to landscape-scale projects that have a clear benefit for habitat. In addition, campaigns should engage grassroots citizen action in support of the conservation effort and must have a clear recreational benefit.
To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) organization. However, before applying for funding, an organization must first be nominated by one of the alliance's member companies.
Nominations must be received no later than May 1, 2018. Upon review, selected nominees will be invited to submit a full proposal by June 1, 2018.
See the Conservation Alliance website for program guidelines, information about how to be nominated by an alliance member, and application procedures.
