MOU will award grants for bird-related projects to be funded from the Savaloja Memorial Fund in 2022. Grants can be awarded for projects that increase our understanding of birds, promote preservation of birds and their natural habitats, or increase public interest in birds. Proposals that include those currently underrepresented in Minnesota's birding community are welcome as a means of broadening public support for birds and their habitat.
Awards typically range from a few hundred dollars up to as much as $4000. In 2021 eight grants, totaling nearly $13,500, were awarded by MOU for education, research and habitat management (further details on these and past projects can be found at https://moumn.org/grants.php. We expect to have about the same amount available for 2022 grants. If your organization has an idea for a great project, please consider applying!
