Grant writing assistance
CHILDREN OF CONSERVATION INC
Our small nonprofit benefits wildlife conservation workers on the ground in five African countries. We'd love some grant-writing assistance from someone with general grants experience. If you have experience with federal opportunities, we'd also be delighted to gain your insight.
We are normally applying to a variety of private foundations for amounts ranging from $2500 to $50,000. If you think you can help, we would love you to come on board and assist us.
Many, many thanks!
About CHILDREN OF CONSERVATION INC
PO Box 412470, Los Angeles, CA 90041, US
Many iconic African animals will become extinct within our lifetimes. The primary threats are hunting, habitat loss and disease. Chimpanzees and gorillas are hunted as a source of meat. In addition, entire families are killed to satisfy an ever-growing foreign pet trade. Elephants and rhinos are killed for their tusks and horns. Deforestation by foreign investors results in habitat loss for all these animals. Children of Conservation is dedicated to the conservation and protection of endangered species through education, habitat preservation and wildlife sanctuary and conservation worker support.
Children of Conservation is proud to provide scholarships for the children of Africa's frontline conservation workers. We work alongside great ape sanctuaries including Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage, Chimp Eden, Limbe Wildlife Center, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Ape Action Africa and Sanaga-Yong. Providing support to their local communities strengthens their work and allows them to worry less about the wellbeing of their workers and local families and to concentrate on their life-saving work.
In Zambia, we built a middle school to bring education to the underserved communities surrounding the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage. It was completed in 2017 and currently provides an otherwise unattainable education to more than 190 children. This year we plan to construct a new middle school project and health center in Uganda. These facilities will benefit the workers at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary and will allow the children of workers there to receive an education they otherwise would not have access to.
