The Wyoming Wildlife Foundation, a component fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation, is inviting proposals for its Memorial Bear Fund, which was established in 1992 to honor the memory of biologists Kirk Inberg and Kevin Roy and pilots Ray Austin and Fred Reed.
Deadline: Oct. 3.
The fund supports Wyoming-based research, habitat protection, and education projects related to any species of bear in the state. Priority will be given to projects with matching funds, established partnerships, management relevance, highest impact, and appropriate budget. Projects will be evaluated based on their likelihood of success, readiness, and availability of matching funds.
Grant amounts typically range between $1,000 and $6,200.
To be eligible, organizations must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
