Conservation Alliance Announces 2024 Winter Grant Recipients

The Conservation Alliance (TCA) is excited to announce the recipients of its latest round of grants. As part of the Winter 2024 cycle, $510,000 in grants were awarded to 12 organizations working to protect outdoor spaces and wild places throughout North America. Three organizations received an additional $45,000 in discretionary grants and TCA awarded one two-year, $120,000 grant as part of its Priority Campaign efforts. 

TCA staff and board members evaluated 56 proposals before narrowing the field. Final grantees for the Winter 2024 round were chosen by TCA member companies through a nomination and voting process. One grantee will be supporting a TCA Priority Campaign - Idaho Conservation League for their work on removing four dams on the Snake River.

“We are at a pivotal moment as we look to protect the natural spaces that are important to so many communities, individuals, and habitats. Our newest round of grants, to both long-time partners and first-time grant recipients, supports strong efforts to conserve these places for current and future generations. We are grateful to TCA’s engaged membership that helps us connect to these important organizations, and fuels our funding and advocacy work across North America,” said Kim Paymaster, Grant Program Director at The Conservation Alliance.

The 16 new grants are located across eight American states – California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming – and one national effort to support the Bureau of Land Management’s Public Lands Rule. Five groups are first time recipients of TCA grant dollars.

The Conservation Alliance works with over 270 member companies to identify important conservation projects that seek to protect wild places and outdoor spaces. Each member company contributes annual dues to a central grant fund which are distributed through discretionary opportunities, the Confluence Program, Priority Campaign grants, and a winter and summer member directed grant cycle to the grassroots groups working to secure conservation outcomes.
