Ready To do something great? So Are we.

We now meet twice a year to review the latest round of grant applications. The process is easy, and you'll hopefully gain a partner dedicated to truly helping your cause for years to come. 

2024 Annual Grant Focus

Each year, we seek to partner with and support non-profit or for-profit organizations making an impact in the focus areas listed below. Due to the overwhelming amount of grant applications we receive each year, we will only accept unsolicited grant applications from Wildlife Conservation nonprofit organizations. 


Historical Preservation

We believe in preserving our history so that we can understand and educate the importance of community. Historic places affect our identity and have a direct impact on our well-being. 

Wildlife Conservation 2024 Focus Area

We believe it's our duty to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. We envision a world where everyone works in harmony to protect what is important so that all life on this planet can thrive.

  • Life Skills
