Grant for Cultural Organizations' Capital Improvements Available Worldwide

From The Foundation Center...

Tourism Cares Offers Worldwide Grant Program

Deadline: June 1, 2007; and October 1, 2007 (Letters of Inquiry Packets)

Tourism Cares ( http://www.tourismcares.org/ ), a nonprofit charity supported by the tourism industry, administers the Worldwide Grant Program to support worthy tourism-related nonprofit organizations working to preserve, conserve, and restore the world's natural, cultural, and historic treasures.

Primary consideration is to fund projects and programs whose goal is capital improvements that serve to protect, restore, or conserve sites of exceptional cultural, historic, or natural sig- nificance; or the education of local host communities and the traveling public about conservation and preservation of sites of exceptional cultural, historical, or natural significance.

The 2007 Worldwide Grant Program goals for grantmaking call for a balanced distribution to U.S. and non-U.S. recipients. Based on merit and availability of funds, grants of up to $100,000 each will be considered.

To be eligible, U.S.-based organizations must have nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status; non-U.S.-based organizations must have status equivalent to the U.S. 501(c)(3). Visit the Tourism Cares Web site for complete program information.
