Californa Wildlands Grassroots Fund
The Fund, an initiative of the Tides Foundation, was established to support the efforts of activists to preserve California’s wildlands. The Fund focuses on small nonprofits, with budgets of $100,000 or less, and individual activists with a sponsoring organization, who show a demonstrated ability and commitment to conserve California’s natural landscapes, ecosystems, plants, and wildlife. The Fund also prioritizes geographic areas and advocacy efforts that have not received significant foundation support. Funded activities include grassroots organizing, citizen participation in public meetings and hearings, public education, legislative advocacy, media campaigns, lawsuits, listing petitions, and conferences and meetings. The Fund also supports skills and leadership trainings, restoration, scientific research, coalition building, as well as developing partnerships with government agencies, public entities, nonprofits, and communities.
