GRANTS: Tinker Foundation
The Tinker Foundation's program of Institutional Grants supports the theme of sustainable resource management (among others) in Latin America. Particular issues of interest include sustainable agriculture, sustainable forestry and non-timber forest products, sustainable tourism, fisheries management, and payment for environmental services as well as issues of water scarcity and quality for communities. The Foundation encourages project collaboration among organizations in the USA and Latin America and prefers to fund those institutions that are actively engaged with external stakeholders in addressing an issue of concern. Tinker invites brief letters of inquiry to the Foundation before proposals are prepared and submitted. The application deadlines are March 1 and September 15 of each year.
