HCTF logoHi again, Funds Fans!  What’s up with all the posts today, right?  I am doing a bit of spring cleaning in my funding database and finding gems all over the place.  Enjoy!  Share!  Apply!

The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation is a non-profit charitable foundation that invests in projects that maintain and enhance the health and biological diversity of British Columbia’s fish, wildlife, and habitats so that people can use, enjoy, and benefit from these resources.  HCTF is a proposal-driven organization and they invite grant applications from anyone who has a good idea that benefits fish, wildlife and habitat in British Columbia.

March 31st, 2015: Applications Close for Acquisition Grants.  HCTF accepts proposals for projects that acquire land or interests in land to secure the value of these areas for conservation of fish and wildlife habitats and populations.

May 15th, 2015: Deadline for submitting PCAF Applications.  The Public Conservation Assistance Fund provides small grants to organizations and individuals who have a conservation project in mind but need financial help to make it happen.  To assist as many groups as possible throughout the province each year, grants are modest, averaging about $2,500 each. There is an annual limit of $10,000 per year per project.

September 30th, 2015: Applications Close for Go Grants (Second Call)  GO Grants provides grants to K-12 schools for transportation, project materials and program fees that support outdoor learning experiences about BC’s environment.
