Grants to Support Canoeing and Inland Waterway Conservation
The main purpose of the Canoe Foundation is to “support all to enjoy and benefit from the experience of paddling on our water in a sustainable manner”. The Foundation does this through grant making that facilitates improvements to suitable landing and launching points and by promoting the conservation of inland waterways for the benefit of all sectors of the community. The Foundation awards grants to projects that increase and protect public access points, steps or platforms and to improve the suitability of launching and landing sites for all sectors of the community. Funding applications are welcome from clubs, community groups and regions with an active interest in, and project purpose of, wider canoeing participation.
Closing date for applications: 31st August 2020
