The Sea-Changers has announced its Main Grants for Marine Conservation.
The projects Sea-Changers funds will achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- To address the root causes of marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK.
- To prevent or reduce negative impacts on UK coastal and marine environments and/or species.
- To add to the body of knowledge about marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK.
- For grants between £500 and £2,500.
What type of projects do Sea-Changers funds?
- Sea-Changers is particularly interested in grassroots projects that galvanise community action and projects that increase the number of people taking action for marine conservation.
- Sea-Changers will consider partial funding of projects where other funds are also being sought or are already in place, but you will need to demonstrate exactly which elements of the project the Sea-Changers grant will be used to fund, as well as how its funding fits into the wider finances of the project.
- Sea-Changers gives one-off grants (i.e. not continual funding) to UK-based charities and not-for-profit organisations (including schools) carrying out marine conservation related activities.
- Sea-Changers welcomes applications from a variety of groups and entities.
What doesn’t Sea-Changers fund?
- Projects that have a political aim.
- Applications solely to fund administrative or core operating costs.
- Retrospective projects or funding requests.
- Individuals or causes that will benefit only one person.
