Apply for Weeden Foundation Grant Program

Deadline: 26 April 2019

The Weeden Foundation is seeking letter of Inquiry from organizations for its various funding programs in order to protect biodiversity. The Foundation works to protect old-growth forests, expand habitats for endangered species on public and private lands, and link key wildlife corridors.

The Weeden Foundation has supported International and Domestic Population Stabilization projects based on the rationale that an increasing population causes greater impact on the environment and loss of biodiversity.

Funding Areas

  • Domestic Biodiversity Program
  • International Biodiversity Program
  • Land Acquisition Program
  • Population Program
  • Consumption Program

Funding Information

The average grant size is between $15,000 and $20,000, and only under exceptional circumstances do grants exceed $20,000.

Eligible Projects

The Foundation funds projects that:

  • advocate for increased federal funding of family planning services
  • promote reduction of immigration levels (immigration currently accounts for the majority of U.S. population growth);
  • investigate the impacts of population-driven sprawl on adjacent wild areas

Documentation

The following materials constitute a complete application package:

  • financial statements (preferably audited)
  • list of Board of Directors and their affiliations
  • IRS tax exemption 501(c)(3) certification letter or an equivalency document for non-U.S. based organizations (obtained in-country)
  • project budget
  • organizational budget
  • other sources and amounts of institutional support (past, present, and anticipated future); and
  • qualifications of key personnel

How to Apply

  • The Foundation requires that new applicants (not current grantees) submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) via email.
  • Returning applicants (who received a grant the previous year) do not need to submit a LOI.

    I am an individual who have passion and interest to help needy people. but my problem is that i don’t have the funds to help or support them. please I am pleading with you if you could kindly help me with funding to reach my dream of helping the needy. I am a Ghana, Northern region a town called Tamale and I want to help stop child labor by enrolling more of them in to schools and some to learn handicraft of their choice. Many of them are selling items in the market center and some carrying people loads for money.Their ages are between the age 10 to 20 years. Anytime I see them like that my heart breaks. sometimes i do give some of them money to go home and rest. It is so pathetic. I know i can’t do this alone else a help from organization like yours.
    i would be grateful to hear from you.
    Best regards.
    Esther.
