Small Grants Program
In 1990 the Rainforest Information Centre established its Small Grants Fund and has since provided over $1,000,000 to hundreds of projects, often in circumstances or countries where organisations would have difficulty in obtaining funding from conventional sources. Funding for the Small Grants Program is now being generated largely through Planetfunder, which is growing the amount of funds available for projects. RIC uses these funds for their own projects and also to make grants to conservation partners. This continues their grant making program established in 1990.
