Growing Friends Groups

Our nation’s public lands need our support every day. With stretched budgets and limited staff, land managers at federal, state and local public lands need all the help they can get. That help often comes from nonprofit organizations whose missions are focused on serving public land sites in the nation and the improvement and responsible use of those sites. Sometimes these organizations are called Friends Groups, sometimes Cooperating Associations, sometimes, simply a partner. They are invaluable in supporting, promoting and helping maintain public lands.
Every Day Grants, sponsored by Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc, are designed to provide funding to strengthen the effectiveness of community-based 501(c)(3) organizations and groups. The National Environmental Education Foundation(NEEF) will award 25 grants of up to $5,000 each.
Applications are due May 25, 2012. More Information at
