The Leiter Family Foundation was established in 1999 to support community based non-profit organizations dedicated to preservation of habitat and environmental education. Grants range from $2,000 to $10,000. Applications will be accepted twice yearly:
Preliminary letters by May 1 and November 1.
Full proposals by June 1 and December 1.
Funding decisions will be made in July and January.
Preferences will be given to community based, collaborative, and coalition projects involving a number of organizations working together to share strengths and to maximize effectiveness. In general, grants will not be given to established well-funded national organizations. Capital funding will usually not be considered. Non U.S. based organizations are fully eligible for granting.
