We just got word from our friends at Redwood Creek that they have launched the second year of their very generous Greater Outdoors Project. With a cash prize of $50,000, one very deserving nonprofit is sure to have an easier 2009. Applications will be accepted now through March 1, 2009.
Then from April 1 through May 31, 2009, you can help support your favorite nonprofit by voting for it online or via text message. The winning organization will be announced this summer and will be featured in a national Redwood Creek advertising campaign.
The first annual Greater Outdoors Project $50,000 grant was awarded to the Southeast Wisconsin Chapter of Trout Unlimited to fund the “Camp Creek Restoration Project” to improve water quality and fishing opportunities in Camp Creek, located near Madison, Wisc.
To enter into this year’s Greater Outdoors Project, participants must complete the online application at www.RedwoodCreek.com, which includes submitting a statement of purpose, detailed budget, timeline, and photographs of the proposed project. All project work must be completed by December 2010.
