James L. Baillie Memorial Fund
The Regular Grant program is intended to provide grants of $1,000 to $5,000 to non-profit organizations for projects that promote the overall goals and objectives of the Baillie Fund. Baillie Fund Regular Grants may contribute up to 50% of the total value of a project. The value of a Regular Grant must be at least matched by cash or in-kind contributions.
A minimum of $15,000 per year is available annually under the Regular Grants program. The number of Regular Grants per year is expected to range up to 8.
The deadline for receipt of Regular Grant applications is 15 December. Grant decisions are announced by April. Applications must follow the prescribed format and be a maximum of 10 pages in 12-point type. Only applications submitted electronically (in Microsoft Word, .RTF or .PDF format) will be accepted.
Eligible Regular Grant proposals are evaluated by the Baillie Fund Trustees, a volunteer committee comprising five to seven professional and amateur ornithologists from across Canada. The Trustees rank the Regular Grant proposals based on the following criteria:
- quality of the project;
- quality of the application;
- is the project volunteer-based? How many volunteers are involved?;
- qualifications of the project proponents to undertake the project; and
- other considerations (including amount of matching funds, realistic budget).
