Small Grants Program


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.


Grant Guidelines 


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.


Proposals should follow these guidelines:

  • Because of limited resources, the Board anticipates awarding multiple grants generally less than $500.  
  • Applications should follow the form provided by GEAS (found below), with the entire proposal being a maximum of two pages. 
  • In addition to the grant proposal, candidates should submit a letter of reference regarding your ability to complete the stated project. 
  • Successful applicants must agree to submit a report on the status of the project and how the funds were used within 1 year of receiving funds. 
Submissions: Proposals must be submitted by email to Michele Crist the Grant and Awards Committee Chair: mrcgoldeneagle@gmail.com

Membership starts at just $20/year and supports our programs, education, conservation and advocacy work.
