Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to engage middle school age students in experiential environment learning. The goal of the foundation is to engage students in educational experiences relating to the environment and surroundings. In general programs should involve schools and communities and involve hands on environment learning. The proposal seeks to fund programming that will allow every fifth and/or sixth grader in Oregon to experience an outdoor-oriented educational, residential, experiential, interdisciplinary experience that engages the senses. Programs should be 3 to 5 days in length and contain an overnight element.

Priority funding will be given to programs that have extensive community support and well-developed partnerships, that engage college or high school students as mentors, incorporate pre-trip orientation and post-trip follow-up sessions, assess both short- and long-term changes in participants’ understanding of required standards, natural systems and environmental literacy and/or give scholarships to students in need and programs of schools exhibiting high need (i.e., Free and Reduced Lunch).
