Washington Crossing Audubon Society is pleased to announce its annual Holden Fund Grant competition to assist individuals and organizations in advancing environmental education and conservation through initiatives broadly related to birdlife. Funding for this program is possible through a generous bequest from the late Polly Holden to be used for conservation and environmental education. This year, a total of up to $15,000 is available from the fund. Individual grants will be capped at $5,000.
Grant applications will be reviewed by the WCAS Grants Committee, which will provide recommendations to the full WCAS board for approval and announcement of recipients by February 1. Submissions must be received by November 1.
Interested individuals and organizations should submit an application that supplies the information outlined below (with supporting material as appropriate) by November 1 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Grant money can NOT be used towards salaries or travel/transportation expenses. Recipients of funded grants will be required to submit a report upon project completion.
