Overview:

KLF offers a competitive grant program to qualifying conservation-focused non-profit organizations whose programs and activities preserve and protect environments and living organisms of the Salish Sea region. By helping others fulfill their conservation missions, we support the health of the Salish Sea region.

The Salish Sea region is the intricate network of coastal mountains, land, and waterways that include the southwestern portion of the Canadian province of British Columbia and the northwestern portion of the U.S. state of Washington. Its major bodies of water are the Strait of Georgia, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Puget Sound.

Our funding criteria for these conservation education grants are based on our by-laws, articles of incorporation, status as an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) organization, and the wishes of Paul Wiseman, founding member of the Keta Legacy Foundation.

Level 2: The Paul Wiseman Conservation Education Grant

The Keta Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce the expansion of the Paul Wiseman Conservation Education Grant. We will offer two grants during this round with a $15,000 limit for each.

  • For one award, we will welcome substantial projects that envision significant environmental education benefits with carefully articulated goals and outcomes.
  • The second award will be given for a restoration project that includes a strong educational research component.
  • Both grant types should have high impact or visibility and could span multiple years.
