REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS – SMALL GRANT FUND

The Global Partnership for Sharks and Rays (GPSR) is a philanthropic collaboration focused on halting the overexploitation of the world’s sharks and rays, reversing declines, restoring populations, and preventing extinctions. GPSR is a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, Inc., a registered 501c3 public charity. The GPSR’s overarching grantmaking strategy recognizes that investments are needed in conservation science, policy, advocacy, communications, and capacity-building to reduce shark and ray mortality and ensure their recovery and sustainable management. The Small Grant Fund is intended to support these priorities by providing grants that do not exceed $25,000 and one year duration. Small Grant proposals to the GPSR are solicited twice a year through a request for proposals and a minimum of five projects will be funded from each request. There is no guarantee that the submission of a Small Grant Proposal will lead to funding.

Types of projects eligible for Small Grants include:

1) Emerging conservation opportunities that require a quick turnaround outside the normal GPSR grantmaking cycle;
2) Small scientific studies, reports, or evaluations necessary to advance shark and ray conservation;
3) Scoping larger shark and ray conservation and management projects;
4) Support for small NGOs with limited operational capacity to allow the NGOs to advance an emerging shark and ray conservation opportunity; and
5) Capacity building support for small NGOs, especially in developing countries.

Only individuals, or groups of individuals, associated with a non-profit organization or an academic institution are eligible to receive funding. Only one application from an entity will be considered.
To apply, complete a proposal that complies with the requirements below and email it as a PDF to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
