The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor businesses that supports efforts to protect specific wild places for their habitat and recreation values.

Before applying for funding, an organization must first be nominated by one of our member companies. Click here for a list of members. Members nominate organizations by completing and submitting a nomination form. We provide our members with a link to the nomination form in early April and October.  We will then send each nominated organization a request for proposal (RFP) instructing them how to submit a full request. We accept grant requests up to $50,000. Please review our funding criteria before seeking a nomination. Please contact only one member per funding cycle for nomination.

WE WILL NOT ACCEPT PROPOSALS FROM ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE NOT FIRST NOMINATED.

The Conservation Alliance conducts two funding cycles annually. Deadlines for those cycles are:

Summer Cycle:
Nominations due May 1
Proposals due June 1
Grants announced early October

Winter Cycle:
Nominations due November 1
Proposals due December 1
Grants announced early April
