> Club300 Bird Protection
> Since 1991 the Swedish Club300 has contributed more than USD600,000 to bird 
> protection projects all around the world. Projects we have supported include 
> conservation and research on many rare, threatened or little known species 
> like Guerney's Pitta, Hawaiian Crow, Pale-headed Brush-finch, Puaiohi and 
> Sumatran Ground Cuckoo.
> The majority of the contributions come directly from our Swedish members. The 
> foundation is also distributing funds collected at bird fairs, or donated by 
> persons or associations. During the last five years we have on average 
> donated around USD8,000 annually. Since our funds are limited our focus is to 
> contribute money to highly threatened or poorly known species.
> Below are the criteria and guidelines on how to apply for funding. We urge 
> you to read these through carefully since failure to abide by any of the 
> criteria may lead to the application not being considered for funding.
> General guidelines:
> * Only applications concerning projects aimed at birds listed as Critically 
> Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN), Extinct in the Wild (EW) or Data Deficient 
> (DD) on the IUCN Red List of threatened species are eligible for funding. 
> These categories comprise about 590 of the worlds most threatened or least 
> known species. A list of these species can be generated on the Birdlife 
> International Data zone<>.
> * Ongoing projects that receive or previously have received support from 
> Club300 are excepted from the above criterion.
> * The maximum annual amount granted to a single project is USD 5,000.
> * Applications are accepted on a yearly basis.
> * Club 300 will monitor the progress in all projects that are granted 
> financial support.
> How to apply:
> * Applications for each year must be received by July 31st. Which 
> applications are granted will be decided by the board of Club300 at their 
> autumn meeting and communicated to the applicants before the end of each 
> year. Decisions by the Club300 board on which projects to support are final 
> and cannot be appealed by the applicant.
> * Applications are only accepted as a single PDF file sent via e-mail to 
> Club300 Bird Protection<>. Applications sent 
> by physical mail or courier are not accepted.
> * The application must be written in English or Swedish and contain a maximum 
> of five pages.
> The application must include:
> * Name, physical address and e-mail of the applicant.
> * A detailed description of the project, including information on which bird 
> species will benefit from the project, and their IUNC Red List categorization.
> * Geographic position of the project site, please include map if needed.
> * Budget and an estimate of costs, which should include a detailed breakdown 
> of expenses.
> * The amount requested from Club300 (in USD, EUR or SEK).
> * A detailed specification on how the requested money will be used.
> * A long term plan for the project, including planned follow-up etc.
> * A list of other consulted donors, or sources of financial support.
> * A note on how Club300 will be acknowledged if we decide to support the 
> project.

> contact us. Good luck with your application!
