Grant Description
Grants to Wyoming nonprofit and youth organizations, public schools, and governmental agencies for youth-centered environmental preservation and natural resource projects. The purpose of the program is to encourage young people to learn about the state's natural resources as well as science and technology and their application to the well-being of Wyoming’s citizens.

Proposals should include at least one of the following elements:

  • Address at least one wildlife or natural resource conservation issue (for example, habitat and open space enhancement and protections, or the relationship of industrial development to habitat, or non-consumptive wildlife management).
  • Serve as a catalyst to initiate conservation and/or best practices in the areas of wildlife and natural resources.
  • Encourage the involvement of young people in volunteer activities centered around natural resources.
  • Apply new technologies (for example, geographic information systems or remote sensing) to outdoor learning.

Consider the sustainability of the proposed project once grant funding has ended.

In addition to evaluating each proposal against the above elements, the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation (WWF) Advisory Board asks the following questions about each grant request:

  • Is the proposed project youth centered?
  • Do youth have active participation in the project?
  • Does the proposal emphasize the project rather than simply requesting funds for equipment?
  • Does the proposed project have measurable outcomes and objectives?
  • Does the proposed project collaborate with other agencies, organizations, or businesses?
  • Does the proposed project have other funding sources?


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Grants may be made to public schools, youth organizations, or other nonprofit organizations exempt from federal taxation under Sections 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and, on occasion, to public/governmental agencies.

Grants are not made to individuals.

Pre-Application Information
Proposals are reviewed annually. The Foundation will begin accepting proposals no sooner than September 1 and the deadline is November 1.

Generally, an organization may apply only once within a twelve-month period.
