    Deadline Alerts: December 31st to January 31st 

    Deadline Alert!Hey Funds Fans!  I’ll bet you thought I’d dropped off the face of the earth 🙂  I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year will bring many good things to you and yours.  Here’s a little something-something to start things off on a positive note:

    December 31st, 2014. Grants from $5,000+.  The BC SPCA Community Animal Spay/Neuter Grant is a grant competition that will help communities across British Columbia address pet overpopulation.  Up to $87,500 will be distributed among successful applicants in 2015. The grants are available to registered animal charities and non-profits, municipalities, veterinarians, First Nation’s governments and tribal councils and BC SPCA branches.

    January 16th, 2015.  Maximum grant $50,000 USD.  The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) invites civic organizations, associations, independent media, and other similar non-government organizations around the world to apply for 2015 grant funding.  The Endowment’s programs are devoted to encouraging democratic political development. It generally does not fund projects aimed primarily at promoting economic and social development. Applications are encouraged from local, independent organizations for non-partisan programs seeking to: Promote and defend human rights and the rule of law, Support freedom of information and independent media, Strengthen democratic ideas and values, Promote accountability and transparency, Strengthen civil society organizations, Strengthen democratic political processes and institutions, Promote civic education, Support democratic conflict resolution, Promote freedom of association, Strengthen a broad-based market economy

    January 30th, 2015. Maximum grant $150,000/project.  Justice Canada: Measures to Address Prostitution Initiative .  Prostitution is a form of sexual exploitation that disproportionately and negatively impacts women and children and other marginalized groups. It is an extremely dangerous activity that poses a risk of violence and psychological harm to those subjected to it, regardless of the venue in which it takes place. The emotional and physical health consequences for those involved in prostitution are significant and, in turn, make leaving prostitution difficult.  Research shows that many individuals involved in prostitution have histories of victimization, and that they continue to experience victimization while selling sexual services.

    Funding recipients will include organizations that have strong partnerships and networks within their communities, have experience working with persons involved in prostitution, including conducting outreach activities, and have experience supporting and managing complex program implementation and evaluation. Eligible organizations include: not-for-profit community or professional organizations; provincial, territorial, regional, municipal and local governments/agencies; Aboriginal governments; and police services, universities and educational institutions/boards of education.

    January 31st, 2015.  Grants up to $5,000.  The William A. Burnham Memorial Fund is calling for proposals from people who are working with birds of prey, on bird species in the Arctic, falconry-related topics or other bird species program. Proposals should describe the basic biological question(s) being examined or other project being proposed. Awards are for one year and range up to $5,000.  Grants are open to people of all ages for use anywhere in the world.

    NOW OPEN: Habitat Conservation funding from WHC 

    Habitat funding

    A good Monday to you, Funds Fans!  Here’s a little something-something for habitat enthusiasts.

    Since 1985, Wildlife Habitat Canada has provided over $60 million in grants to more than 1,500 habitat conservation projects across Canada.  The funds invested by Wildlife Habitat Canada to support grants come from the purchase of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp. The stamp is purchased primarily by waterfowl hunters to validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits, and is also sold to print purchasers, stamp collectors, and individuals interested in contributing to the conservation, restoration and enhancement of wildlife habitat in Canada. With the support of the Canadian Wildlife Service of Environment Canada, a portion of the revenues associated with the sale of the stamp is allocated to fund wildlife habitat conservation projects across Canada.

    In recognition of the fact that the purchase of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp by waterfowl hunters is the primary source of funding for the grant program, within the available budget, Wildlife Habitat Canada will primarily support:

    • Projects that address priority activities under the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP)
    • Regional and local habitat projects of importance to other migratory game birds
    • Newfoundland and Labrador Murre Conservation Fund projects

    Only Canadian recipients are eligible recipients and include: not-for-profit organizations; aboriginal organizations, associations and wildlife management boards; research, academic and educational institutions; for profit organizations such as small businesses, companies, corporations, and industry associations; local organizations such as community associations and groups, seniors’ and youth groups, and service clubs; and, provincial, territorial, municipal and local governments and their agencies.

    Grant Funding Applications are due on November 1 each year.

    Also on Twitter @WhitleyAwards

    Also on Twitter @WhitleyAwards

    Good day Funds Fans!  More good funding news on the environmental front today 🙂  The Whitley Awards are for wildlife and nature conservation focused projects.  Whitley Awards recognise the leadership qualities of individuals working with effective teams with strong nature conservation experience. We look for people who are excellent ambassadors for the work that they do.  It is not a requirement of the team leader to hold professional scientific qualifications. However, projects that aim to address issues on a biological level will need to demonstrate that activities will be informed based on scientific data. The inclusion of appropriate scientists or expertise on the team will also be expected if this is relevant to the project.

    Application to the Whitley Awards is open and applicants do not need to be nominated.  Whitley Awards are worth £35,000 GBP in conservation funding to be spent on projects over a period of one year.  Up to seven Whitley Awards will be available in 2014.  The deadline for applications is Thursday October 31st 2013.
