Does your community have a small initiative to improve the environment?
Maybe the GCBR Flexible Micro Fund can help.
By providing small grants, the Flexible Micro Fund enables the GCBR Board of Directors to support voluntary initiatives in the Biosphere Reserve which advance GCBR’s vision of People and Nature Living in Harmony. It is a responsive funding mechanism that stimulates citizens working together for ecological sustainability. The Fund currently has a total value of R100 000 per annum.
WHO AND WHAT IS ELIGIBLE?
Any GCBR member (except for current Board members or their organisations) can apply for this type of support. Proposed initiatives should address a specific need, be meaningful for the community or group involved, and be relevant to at least two of GCBR’s six priority themes.
Applications can be made throughout the year and directed to the Board Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications which meet selection criteria and are within the available Fund balance, will be referred to the Board for a decision. The GCBR aims to reply to applications within 14 days.
