1) Objective

SCI Foundation is a non-profit IRS 501(c)(3) corporation. The mission of SCI Foundation is to fund and direct wildlife programs dedicated to wildlife conservation and outdoor education. More specifically, the conservation purpose of SCI Foundation is to conduct and support scientific and technical studies in the field of wildlife conservation, to assist in the design and development of scientifically sound wildlife programs for the management of wildlife and sustainable-use hunting, and to demonstrate the constructive role that hunting and hunters play in the conservation of wildlife and in preserving biodiversity worldwide. Conservation Matching Grants help SCI Chapters accomplish conservation projects that further the mission of SCI/F. At the same time, they build partnerships with state and federal agencies, organizations and other SCI Chapters.

Projects should be aligned with the following criteria: (1) wildlife management: which involves the active implementation of techniques or equipment to manage wildlife populations or their habitats; (2) research: projects should be credible programs carried out by qualified individuals with specific objectives. These objectives should enhance our abilities to sustain habitat and populations of all wildlife; (3) enforcement: includes activities associated with regulating wildlife use such as harvesting, access, and the enforcement of wildlife laws.

2) Eligibility

Eligible are non-government organisations. To be eligible for a matching grant, a Chapter must be in compliance according to the SCI/F bylawsquoted in Article XVI, section 1 through 5. Grant requests from Chapters/Committees in existence forless than 12 months will be reviewed and approved at the discretion of the Matching Grants Committee only.

3) Location

Support has so far been provided to projects implemented in Africa, North America and Asia.

4) Budget 

A Chapter or Chapter Sables Committee is limited to $2,000 in Conservation matching grants per year. A chapter cannot receive a matching grant in excess of 50% of the chapter’s 30% payment to SCI/F or50% of what the chapter invested in the project. Matching Grants will not be awarded to both a Chapter and its Chapter Sables Committee for the same project.

5) Application

The application with proof of Chapter payment (e.g., copy of cancelled check, front and back; thank you letter; bank statement) can be sent by email, fax or mail. The Conservation Grants Subcommittee reviews all applications arriving at the Washington DCOffice quarterly (September, December, March, and June). All templates can be downloaded from their website.
