The objective of the PWF Cans for Conservation Grant Program is to provide funding support for youth conservation activities in Pennsylvania that fit within the mission of the Pennsylvania Wildlife Federation and the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen & Conservationists. The program will fund projects that contribute significantly to the education of our youth in conservation, hunting, fishing, trapping and shooting sports.
Applicants must show proof of 501(c) non-profit status and provide a completed W-9 or identify a non-profit organization that will administer the finances for the grant (a pass-through organization).
Applicants must be a member of PWF or PFSC. Sportsmen’s clubs applying for grants must be PFSC member clubs in good standing. (Membership application/dues may be submitted with the grant application.)
While matching funds are not mandatory, funding preference will be given to applications that show matching funds. This can be non-cash, in-kind contributions such as volunteer time, donated services, or other donated items.
While grant amounts vary, most range from $200 to $500 and function as complementary support. We strongly encourage applicants to seek additional, concurrent funding from other funding sources.
PWF grants may not be used for indirect costs, overhead, and other expenses unrelated to the project or event. Fringe benefits and salaries are also excluded. Highest priorities will be given to “shovel ready” projects, projects with secured matching funds and projects or events benefitting youth conservation activities.
Funds may not be used for travel to meetings or conferences, legal actions, endowments, or publication of research results.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. The PWF board meets twice a year (March & September) but holds virtual meetings when warranted. Please specify your timelines and deadlines on the application.
· Previous PWF grantees must first comply with all prior reporting and financial accounting obligations before submitting applications for additional support.
· The grant application should introduce the project/event and list specific budgetary items for which funding is being requested.
· All recipients are required to provide a final report within 3 months of completion.
· We strongly encourage electronic submission of all documents to firstname.lastname@example.org
· If electronic submission is not possible, please submit your information to:
