NWSA Funding Programs
The National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance is proud to bring wilderness stewardship funding opportunities to our Partner Member Organizations. As the NWSA grows we hope more funding opportunities will be available to our Partner Members.
To be eligible to apply for NWSA Wilderness Funding your organization must:
- Be a current IRS recognized non profit, such as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit or have a fiscal sponsor who is a qualified organization.
- Some Funding Programs require that you be a current NWSA Partner Member Organization; check the specifics of each Funding Program. Typically our Wilderness only funding programs require a membership, such as our Boots on the Ground or NWSA WSP Funding Programs.
Our membership rates are shown below. Membership now runs on the calendar year: January through December.
