Due 5/1/2013: Apply for $2,500 grant for outdoor youth programs
reposted from the GrantStation Insider 4/4/2013 e-newsletter:
The North Face Explore Fund aims to inspire the next generation of young explorers and conservationists by supporting nonprofit organizations throughout the country that are working to get youth outdoors to explore their natural world. Grants are provided to organizations that encourage youth outdoor participation, focusing primarily on creating more connections of children to nature, increasing access to both front and backcountry recreation, as well as providing experiential education for both personal and environmental health. Funded programs should seek a specific audience and reach out to a specific community or place of interest. In 2013, the Fund will award 30 grants of $2,500; ten additional grants of varying amounts will be awarded based on online voting taking place this summer. The application deadline is May 1, 2013. Visit the Fund’s website to submit an online application.
