Grants Enhance Land Conservation in New England
The Fields Pond Foundation provides grants to community-based nature and land conservation organizations that serve to increase environmental awareness by involving local residents in conservation issues. The Foundation supports nonprofit organizations and local government agencies in the six New England states and upper New York State. The Foundation’s grantmaking priorities include land acquisition for conservation as well as project grants for trailmaking and other enhancement of public access to lands, rivers, and coastlines. Most grants range between $2,000 and $10,000. Grant requests may be submitted throughout the year. Details on the application process are available on the Foundation’s website.
