Last Call - Funds available for safe and clean boating projects    
Tue, 17 Dec 2013

The BoatUS Foundation is looking to fund Grassroots Grants projects that utilize new, innovative approaches to encourage safe and clean boating among the boating public. Organizations with the best grant applications will be awarded individual grants of up to $10,000 to implement their plan. However, applications need to be submitted by January 15, 2014 and public online voting on the applications will take place in early Spring 2014.

The BoatUS Foundation's Grassroots Grants Program has funded over $1.3 million in local boating safety and clean water projects over the past 25 years. Last year, the national 501(c)(3) nonprofit more than doubled its individual maximum grant size to $10,000. 'While the program targets small local groups, organizations and non-profits, we're getting away from awarding funds for traditional signs, brochures, or boat show giveaway items,' said BoatUS Foundation Outreach Manager Alanna Keating. 'Now, we're looking to tap into the many exciting interactive and innovative ways to encourage behavior changes, including social media, the web or unique hands-on activities.'

Groups wishing to apply for one or more Grassroots Grants may go to www.BoatUS.org/Grants to view the guidelines and begin their application. Grant application may include videos, photos, graphics or anything to convey the group's concept to help increase the chances of funding. The projects with the most votes will have one year to complete the grant project.

To assist grant applicants, the BoatUS Foundation has created a short video highlighting some previous grantees and their advice for applicants:
