     2017 Grant Guidelines      2016 Grant Report Form

Collaboration on key issues in 2016 proved very successful for organizations that worked with the Everglades Foundation to advance restoration. We welcome your participation in the 2017 grant cycle process and anticipate that organizations chosen to receive grants will maximize their inherent strengths, focus on generating measurable outcomes and find ways to add value to their efforts to save the River of Grass. Should you be interested in submitting a proposal for the 2018 grant cycle, please contact Dawn Shirreffs at dshirreffs (at) evergladesfoundation dot org.

Grants are made to projects that:

  • Raise the profile of Everglades restoration at the local, state and national levels through communications, community mobilization and grassroots organizing.
  • Employ unique, strategic and tactically sound advocacy campaigns that influence media, advance policymaker education and develop champions on specific Everglades restoration projects and key policy outcomes.
  • Broaden the base of support to include landowners, sportsmen, business interests, etc. and building alliances beyond environmental organizations.

 *If your organization did not receive 2017 funding from Everglades Foundation, please contact Dawn Shirreffs at dshirreffs (at) evergladesfoundation dot org for a pre-proposal discussion prior to the 2018 grant cycle.
