The ARGUK 100% Fund supports practical conservation work by the ARGs. ARG volunteers are often best placed to target funding effectively for amphibian and reptile conservation, and sometimes small amounts of money can make a big difference, but nevertheless can be hard to find. The sort of projects funded might include the creation of new ponds or the purchase of tools/materials to help with habitat management, or even match funding to help secure a bigger project.
It's called 100% because all money donated goes into funding conservation projects – not on administration or overheads.
The ARG UK 100% Fund is open only to groups affiliated to ARGUK.
- Currently there is no application deadline - bids for funds are considered as they are submitted.
The maximum award will be approximately £250 (but we're open to discussion)
Priority will be given to projects that give the best value for money for amphibian and reptile conservation.
Projects that include funding from other sources or involve partnership working will be looked upon favourably.
Items not eligible for funding
- Administrative or training expenses
- Survey expenses.
