Small Grants Program

Golden Eagle Audubon Society (GEAS) has provided support to individuals and organizations in Idaho since the chapter’s inception in 1972.  In the past few years GEAS has had the opportunity to help financially support many local organizations and projects that align with our organization’s goals. Beginning in 2014, we started a formal request for proposals (RFP) and review process  to encourage requests from new partners and  build more collaborative relationships with existing partners.


Grant Guidelines 

Grants to individuals or nonprofit organizations will be awarded for projects that directly benefit wildlife or their habitats in Idaho, or consist of bird related educational goals. We highly encourage projects that focus on non-game species, but will consider game species applications.

We will accept proposals twice a year, for a maximum of $500 per application. Funding recommendations will be made by the Small Grants Committee and voted on by the GEAS Board at the December and May board meetings. Call for applications will be made through the GEAS Newsletter, the eBlast, and put on the GEAS calendar. Proposals will be scored based on the rubric available below. 

Proposals should follow these guidelines:

  • Because of limited resources, the Board anticipates awarding multiple grants up to $500.  
  • Applications should follow the form provided by GEAS (found below), with the entire proposal being a maximum of two pages. 
  • In addition to the grant proposal, candidates should submit a letter of reference regarding your ability to complete the stated project. 
  • Successful applicants must agree to submit a report on the status of the project and how the funds were used within 1 year of receiving funds. 

Membership starts at just $20/year and supports our programs, education, conservation, and advocacy work.
