The Sarah K. DeCoizart Perpetual Charitable Trust is seeking applications for its Grant Program to support Species conservation and blindness-related services and research.
- Species Conservation: The Trust may support a range of projects dealing with wildlife and species conservation, including the protection of ecologically important areas with a specific species impact. While broader environmental conservation requests may be considered, competitive applications should focus on the impact on particular endangered or at-risk species.
- Blindness: Grants in the area of blindness and vision impairments include a broad range of services and research. Service-related grants may include expansion of existing services, implementation of new efforts and improvements of infrastructure to facilitate services. No grants will be considered to substitute lost government funding. Priority will be given to programs serving the Northeast United States. Research grants will primarily be considered through disease associations or other intermediaries with re-granting programs guided by scientific advisory committees. Preference will be given to efforts that support emerging research talent, innovative treatment or early detection studies.
- Species Conservation: Grants will focus exclusively on project support and will range in size from $20,000 to $75,000 per year. Multi-year commitments will be considered. Priority will be given to projects focused on the tri-state area and New England.
- Blindness: Grants will focus exclusively on project support and will range in size from $20,000 to $50,000 per year. Multi-year commitments will be considered.
- For species conservation: the Northeast region of the United States
- For blindness-related services and research: the Northeast region of the United States
