L-A-D Foundation, CFO partner on $55K conservation grant program


The L-A-D Foundation, with support from the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, is launching a new $55,000 grant program to support the conservation of natural and cultural resources in L-A-D Foundation’s 11-county service area.

Nonprofits benefiting the natural and cultural resources of the Ozarks may apply for up to $10,000 from the L-A-D Foundation Grant Program, administered by the CFO. Organizations must hold 501(c)(3) or similar nonprofit status and work in Oregon, Shannon or Texas counties locally. Other eligible counties are Carter, Crawford, Dent, Madison, Perry, Reynolds, Ripley or Ste. Genevieve.

Projects may include environmental and conservation education, grassroots organizing, new program startup costs, capital support, seed money and workshops, said officials. Requests for operating funds or social events will not be considered.

Proposed projects must be in one of the aforementioned counties.

Agencies can begin the application process at cfozarks.org/applyforgrants. The deadline to apply is Feb. 7, 2024, with grant recipients to be announced in March.
