Tourism Cares, through its Worldwide Grant Program, is making a difference at cultural, historical and natural tourism-related sites around the world. The nonprofit, tax-exempt public charities may apply for projects to conserve, preserve, or restore the site, or educate visitors to the site. These requests may include brick-and-mortar capital improvement projects or educational programs which will enhance interpretation of the site. In 2012, Tourism Cares intends to give two groups of six Worldwide Grants at $10,000 each for an annual total of $120,000.
Required Eligibility Criteria:
- in the United States, and be classified as a bona fide non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) public charity by the Internal Revenue Service, or be a federally-recognized American Indian or Alaska Native tribe within the United States
- outside the United States, and be classified by the country’s official taxing authority as a non-profit, tax-exempt public charity
The Worldwide Grant Application is only available on-line. Paper applications sent in by mail or fax, or e-mailed as attachments, will not be considered.
Deadline: 1 March & 2 July 2012
