Online applications will be invited once a year. Please strictly follow the on-line application link and formats. Applications submitted in any other format will be declined.
Please carefully study the Trust’s Strategic Themes, objectives and the outcomes it seeks to achieve.
In your online application you are required to indicate clearly which Trust Strategic Theme, related objective and outcome(s) your organisation’s proposed programme / project seeks to meet. Applications submitted without this information will be declined.
Following a desk top assessment, a site visit will be conducted to selected applicants as part of an effective assessment process.
Given the overlapping nature of the Strategic Themes, one organisation may during the financial year obtain funding for more than one project – provided it does not exceed the annual average grant of R400 000 and provided that one on-line application is made to this effect.
As the Trust understands that achieving sustainable environmental improvement is a process, it, may in instances, decide to provide multi-year funding toward this end. This is however, done depending on the Strategic Theme, programmatic objectives, subject to satisfactory programme implementation, the achievement of outcomes and adherence to reporting requirements.
The Trust will provide funding for programme costs and related running costs in order to facilitate effective programme implementation.
No bursaries for individual students will be provided.
Research costs for specific research projects as per the Strategic Themes, undertaken by PBOs, may however, contain a minimal component of student fees.
No endowment funding will be provided – all grant funding is to be expended on programme and related running costs within the agreed upon time frames.
No conference attendance and related travel costs will be provided.
No marketing or fundraising costs will be provided including sponsorship of advertisements, auctions, golf days, raffles, special events, publications etc.
