Conservation Education Grant
October 1, 2015
The Mountaineers Foundation has shifted the focus of our Community Grants from community-focused environmental and conservation projects to conservation education.
In September 2013, Mountaineers Foundation received an extremely generous bequest from one of our founding members, Paul Wiseman. Throughout his long years of service Paul routinely made very generous monetary donations to the Foundation and we are extremely appreciative of this most recent, generous bequest. To honor Mr. Wiseman’s intentions Mountaineers Foundation has significantly altered the focus of its Community Grants Program.
- Level 2: The Paul Wiseman Conservation Education Grantwill be approved at a $30,000 limit. We will welcome substantial projects that envision significant environmental education benefits with carefully articulated goals and outcomes. These grants should have a high impact or visibility and could span multiple years. The deadline for this grant application is October 1st.
The Mountaineers Foundation promotes the study of the mountains, forests and streams of the Pacific Northwest, and contributes to preserving its natural beauty and ecological integrity. We fund projects consistent with those purposes. Our funding criteria for these conservation education grants are based on our by-laws, articles of incorporation, status as an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) organization, and the wishes of Paul Wiseman, founding member of the Mountaineers Foundation.
