Boat U.S. Foundation Grassroots Grants
Up to $10,000 for safe and/or clean boating outreach.
From their recent press release:
ALEXANDRIA, Va., October 15, 2012 – After funding over $1 million in local boating safety and clean water projects for the past 21 years, the BoatUS Foundation’s Grassroots Grants Program is more than doubling its maximum grant size to $10,000 for 2013. The Foundation is looking to fund projects that utilize innovative approaches to educate boaters on safe and clean boating topics.
“We hope that with the larger grant size of $10,000, organizations will have the means to reach more boaters through new and creative ways,” said BoatUS Foundation Outreach Manager Alanna Keating. “Over the past two decades many groups have come to us for funding traditional outreach tools such as signs and brochures. Today, there are so many exciting interactive and innovative ways to educate, including social media, the web and hands-on activities.”
Groups interested in applying for one or more Grassroots Grants may go to www.BoatUS.com/Grants to view the grant guidelines and begin their application. Applications must be submitted by midnight on December 17, 2012. In the spring of 2013, the strongest grant applications will be posted online for the public to vote. The groups with the most votes will receive funding and will have one year to complete the grant project.
