Call for Proposals, July-August 2010
$1,000.00 will be awarded in September 2010

We want to thank the family of the late Heidi Frohring for their generous donation of $1,000.00 from the W.O. and G.L. Frohring Foundation to the Tapir Preservation Fund (TPF). This donation has allowed TPF's perpetual Heidi Frohring Memorial Fund to enact the current call for proposals, which will result in the award of $1,000.00 to a tapir conservation project selected by TPF in September. We expect the successful outcome of this call for proposals to become a model for future fundraising and grants by TPF, and we look forward to receiving your proposals.

TPF will help support your project in various ways via the Internet. Reciprocal links will be exchanged if you have a web site, blog or Facebook Page about your work.

. The Tapir Preservation Fund and the Heidi Frohring Memorial Fund will be acknowledged in any publications and materials resulting from this grant.

. A progress report with photos will be submitted within a "reasonable" period after receiving the award (report date to be determined depending on the project). The sooner TPF receives photos and progress reports, the sooner we can help promote your project.
