Deadline: November 1, 2006 (Letters of Inquiry Packets)
Tourism Cares (http://www.tourismcares.org/), the tourism industry’s nonprofit organization, awards charitable grants through its Worldwide Grant Program to worthy tourism-related nonprofit organizations worldwide for capital improvements as well as education programs in conservation and preservation.
The program’s 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 significance; or the education of local host communities and the traveling public about conservation and preservation of sites of exceptional cultural, historical,
or natural significance.
Based on merit and availability of funds, grants of up to $100,000 will be considered.
Grant recipients must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations, or, in the case of non-U.S. organizations, must function as the equivalent. The 2006 Worldwide Grant Program goals for grantmaking call for a balanced distribution to U.S. and non-U.S. recipients.
