As we near the successful conclusion of our third project, saving species in Colombia, we are looking for new projects to fund! Read on if you're interested in responding to our Request for Proposals (RFP).
Part of the reason we've been successful is that we are careful about the projects we support. As we are still in the "start-up" phase, we don't have the deep pockets (or posh offices) of the glamorous big conservation organizations. What we do have is the smartest conservation biologists in the world and a new approach to conservation.
Being selective about our projects ensures that donors get the most bang for the buck. When donors give us money, every cent or penny goes to land purchase on behalf of in-country NGOs. Which brings me to the topic at hand. Because we have to be selective we cannot guarantee approval of submitted proposals. For this reason we ask that interested parties initially submit a brief letter of interest. If the letter shows that the project is likely to meet our criteria, we will invite a full proposal.
If you'd like to submit a proposal, please review the updated information on our Submit Project page, and provide the requested information for your Letter of Interest. There is no deadline, since we will keep the submission opportunity open until we have found suitable projects. However, since we are anxious to support worthy projects, we urge submission as soon as possible.
If you have any questions about submitting a project please contact SavingSpecies.
