Public Lands Program Capacity Building Grant - Due December 1st 2009

Another great grant opportunity! Who knew there were so many conservation-focused grants out there!?

These grants are designed to provide funding to strengthen the organizational effectiveness of community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits whose mission is focused on serving a public lands site in the United States. Capacity-building can take many forms, including, but not limited to, strategic planning, marketing, volunteer development, leadership capacity (board or executive), improved fund-raising, assessments or staff training.

Ten small grants of $1,000 each will be awarded to community-based "Friends of Groups" who meet the grant eligibility requirements and make the best case for how the funds will build their capacity to better serve their local public lands. 

Deadline for the groups to submit their grant application is Dec. 1, 2009.
