Funds for “Friends”

The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), with generous support from Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc., is seeking to strengthen specific volunteer organizations and unleash their potential to serve their public lands by awarding 50 Every Day Grants over the next several months for organizational capacity building.

Often referred to or even titled “Friends of…” organizations, these nonprofit group’s missions are focused on serving public land sites in the nation and the improvement and responsible use of those sites. NEEF’s Every Day Grants will strengthen the stewardship of public lands by strengthening these “Friends.”

There will be two rounds of Every Day grants in 2012, with each round awarding 25 grants of up to $5,000 each. All applications are due January 13, 2012.
