AK Conservation Foundation Organizational Capacity Grants
April 30, 2015
Alaska Conservation Foundation’s (ACF) Organizational Capacity grants support organizations that are working to strengthen and expand Alaska’s conservation movement, based upon elements of ACF’sTheory of Change. The Theory of Change is a guide that helps ACF prioritize functions, commit resources and develop strategies toward reaching our long-term outcomes.
ACF awarded six Organizational Capacity grants in 2013. The Organizational Capacity grant cycle is now open for applications. Please read below for selection criteria and the application process.
In order to be considered for an Organizational Capacity grant, an organization must already demonstrate a commitment to achieve more robust environmental policies, enduring conservation impact, and a more influential conservation movement through implementation of ACF’s favored conservation strategies. Only organizations whose work strongly aligns with two or more of these strategies should consider submitting an application.
Successful applicants that meet the above criteria will propose a clear plan for strengthening their organizational capacity, considering the best practices identified by ACF. ACF does not expect applicants to already follow all of these practices. ACF will favor applications that offer an honest and adequate assessment of current capacity, and a prioritization of capacity building goals.
