The Expo Conservation Fund generates money during the annual American Birding Expo. Nearly 20,000 has been generated by the ECF during the Expo’s first two years. This money comes from donations by individuals, companies, and Expo exhibitors and sponsors, a raffle and silent auction, and from matching gifts. For the 2017 Expo, bird conservation organizations and projects are invited to apply for grants of up to $2,500 from the Expo Conservation Fund. Applications must be completed and submitted by October 31, 2017. Grant winners will be announced in mid-November 2017. For additional information, please see the accompanying PDF.
