Project Proposal Guidelines
Projects are the way we make our greatest impact by enabling, supporting, and assisting others to do the most good using ecologically sound practices. Project Proposals give organizations, institutions, scientists, NGOs and community members the space to present their ecologically focused projects to our community and ask for help. We invite you to submit your project to EcoWB for consideration. Before you do so, please read these project proposal guidelines. Thank you for working for positive environmental change; we are excited to see what you’ve come up with.
Submit a Letter of Interest (approximately 2 pages) containing:
- Project Title
- Define under which areas of interest your project fits
- Project Executive Summary (300 words or less)
- Project Leader and Organization Information (Name, contact information, website, location
- Project Scope (where, beneficiaries, duration, timeframe)
- Proposed Action Plan outline
- Goals and intended results
- Type of Assistance desired from EcoWB
You are welcome to attach supporting documentation such as a portfolio, resume, and other documentation, as needed, though this is not required. Our project team will review your letter and decide whether your project is a good fit and what other questions we have. After consideration we will contact you with our response to the project. We may ask you for more information or explain why we have chosen not to move forward with your project. If we think the project is a good fit, we will provide guidance and send you a full application to complete.
