Mountaineers Foundation provides funding for Pacific Northwest

The Mountaineers Foundation provides support to organizations and agencies working to preserve the natural beauty and ecological integrity of the Pacific Northwest.

The foundation provides support for modest, short-term projects. Eligible projects include studies that will yield new data aimed at protecting Northwest wilderness and wildlife; biological, economic, legal, or policy studies; direct educational programs and materials related to environmental preservation; lectures, conferences, and seminars; written or audiovisual awareness materials; curriculum or other instructional materials; publication of conference proceedings, journal articles; seed or pilot studies that can be continued with funding from other sources; and selected capital improvement projects (e.g., restoration; assistance in purchasing equipment/materials).

The foundation funds selected projects led by 501(c)(3) or other nonprofit organizations, by certain agencies such as libraries and schools, and, occasionally, by individuals.

Amount:  $5,000

Due date: February 1, 2013
