Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources
Conservation of wild places and ecosystems. The EOCA aims to significantly contribute to the conservation of wild places and ecosystems for future generations.
Funding is for field-based projects that protect a threatened species or habitat, and have a link to the outdoor user. Thematic areas are wildlife conservation; protection of forests and wetlands; litter clean-up on trails and mountains; and environmental education in local communities.
Grants are to nonprofit organizations for projects anywhere in the world except North America (which has a separate funding program).
Grants are up to €30 thousand for periods of one or two years.
About the program
The EOCA accepts applications in two ways. Applicants can contact one of EOCA’s members to nominate projects. Alternatively, they can submit their projects directly to the Association.
Applications are invited during July and November of each year.
