Golden Eagle Audubon Society (GEAS) has provided support to individuals and organizations in Idaho since the chapter’s inception in 1972. In the past few years GEAS has had the opportunity to help financially support many local organizations and projects that align with our organization’s goals. Beginning in 2014, we started a formal request for proposals (RFP) and review process to encourage requests from new partners and build more collaborative relationships with existing partners.
Grants to individuals or nonprofit organizations will be awarded for projects that directly benefit wildlife or their habitats in Idaho, or consist of bird related educational goals. We highly encourage projects that focus on non-game species, but will consider game species applications.
We will accept proposals on a rolling basis, but anticipate reviewing admissions twice a year. Funding decisions will be made at the January and July board meetings. We ask that proposals be submitted one month before the board meeting so that they may be reviewed beforehand. Candidates may be contacted by the grant committee in the interim for more information. Proposals will be scored based on the rubric available below.
Deadlines for 2017 are July 3rd and December 11th.
Proposals should follow these guidelines:
