Request for purchase of equipment
WHO DO WE SUPPORT?
We support projects that research, monitor and conserve African wildlife; cultivating respect and understanding between people, animals and the environment.
Please note, Worth Wild Africa does not fund projects - we fund equipment for projects.
HOW WE OPERATE / APPLICATIONS FOR FUNDING
1. WWA is approached by a potential project applicant with a project proposal.
3. All applications for purchase of project equipment go through our Advisory Panel for comprehensive review and approval.
4. On approval, the applicant is requested to provide a purchase order for the equipment / items required and payment is made.
5. All projects are documented with photographs and recipients are required to provide feedback of the impact of the donation.
The maximum value of grants for equipment per application, excluding delivery, is US $1500.
Only one successful application per project per year permitted; no more than two successful applications per project.
Applications for cash will not be considered.
Applications should be completed in full and returned via email to email@example.com
WWA will email applicants confirming receipt and providing a provisional date of notification of the outcome of the application.
All applications are reviewed by the appropriate members of the WWA Advisory panel. No updates will be provided during the review process.
Once the application has been reviewed, applicants will be notified by the WWA office of the decision.
If successful, applicants will be contacted directly to discuss the purchase, provision and delivery of the equipment you have applied for.
N.B. On occasion, equipment to a value in excess of $1500 may be available if, for example, a benefactor donates and dedicates a larger sum to a specific species, project or profession, or where an accumulating fund for these specific areas is established and exceeds $1000. These specific funds will be posted on the WWA website/social media pages as they become available and appropriate applications invited.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF APPLICATION REVIEW
