Alaska Conservation Foundation’s Organizational Capacity grantmaking program supports organizations that are working to strengthen and expand Alaska’s conservation movement, based upon the strategies outlined in our Theory of Change.
Organizational Capacity grant awards provide $20,000 for general operating support.
Applications will be accepted from July 1 to August 26, 2016 through ACF’s online application system.
In order to be considered for an Organizational Capacity grant, an organization must already demonstrate a commitment to achieve more robust environmental policies, enduring conservation impact and a more influential conservation movement through implementation of ACF’s favored conservation strategies listed below. Only organizations whose work strongly aligns with two or more of these strategies should consider submitting an application.
Applicants that meet these criteria should propose a clear plan for strengthening their organizational capacity, considering the best practices identified below. ACF does not expect applicants to already follow all of these practices but we will favor those that offer an honest and adequate assessment of current capacity, and a prioritization of capacity building goals.
Applicants for Organizational Capacity grants must meet the following criteria:
All applicants should review the Organizational Capacity Grant Guidelines before beginning an application.
Note: ACF switched to a new online grants system in June 2016. Even if you are a current or past grantee, you will need to create a new profile.
All grant recipients are required to submit an interim and final report as outlined in the grant contract using the reporting templates provided by ACF.
