Nominations are now open for the Summer 2023 Grant Cycle. Nominating a conservation group to apply for funding is one of the primary ways that our member companies can engage with our work. Nominations connect us to impactful projects and new groups, expanding the scope of our work.

At the beginning of each grant cycle, we ask each member company to nominate one or two organizations to apply for funding. Only those organizations that receive a nomination in this cycle are invited to apply for funding. Nominations kick off an application process that could lead to a $50,000 grant for a grassroots group working to protect a wild place or outdoor space in North America.

Once you have identified an organization whose work meets our funding criteria, please submit your nomination. The deadline to submit your nominations is May 1, 2023. Click here for examples of the types of projects we fund. If you are a current member company and have not received your nomination form or if you have questions about our process, please contact Kim Paymaster.
