The objective of the DESMF grant program is to provide financial support for mycological research and education in the Pacific Northwest. Although a wide range of mycological subjects can be considered, priority will be given to projects involving mushroom-forming fungi (“macrofungi,” “macromycetes”), as they were the focus of Dr. Stuntz’s research. 

The small grants are typically awarded to mushroom clubs/societies and other similar organizations as matching funds for purposes such as purchasing mycological books and visual media, purchasing audio-visual equipment, and conducting educational events such as forays and lectures by guest speakers.

Applications for Small Grants will be accepted at any time.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicants do not necessarily have to reside in the Pacific Northwest as long as the research involves or pertains to Pacific Northwest fungi or the educational activity takes place in the Pacific Northwest and benefits the Pacific Northwest mycological community. 
    • For purposes of the DESMF grant program, the Pacific Northwest is considered to comprise Washington, Oregon, Idaho, western Montana, southern British Columbia, and southeast and south-coastal Alaska.


  • Given our limited resources, DESMF favorably views projects that have obtained (or will obtain) matching (or greater) funding from other sources.
