BCFO encourages submission of proposals from groups or organisations for financial assistance for bird surveys and other ornithological research. It also wishes to foster greater connections between applicants and the society. Potential applicants are reminded that:
1. Requests for funding must be for planned, rather than completed, projects.
2. Under normal circumstances applicants should be, or be willing to become, members of BCFO.
3. Projects and their results are to be reported in BCFO’s journal British Columbia Birds, or in the newsmagazine BC Birding.
4. In order for BCFO Directors to give a timely response to project proposals, deadlines for submission are January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1.
5. All reasonable requests up to a $2000 limit and within the financial strength of the organization will be considered, with any larger requests requiring approval at the AGM.
6. The BCFO Grant Application Guidelines are available here.
