The Native Plant Society of New Mexico awards grants and makes donations to individuals and organizations that further the mission of the Society.

 

The NPSNM Mission Statement:
The Native Plant Society of New Mexico is a non-profit organization that strives to educate the public about native plants by promoting knowledge of plant identification, ecology, and uses; fostering plant conservation and the preservation of natural habitats; supporting botanical research; and encouraging the appropriate use of native plants to conserve water, land, and wildlife.

Types of Projects Considered

The Society will consider funding for any project within or adjacent to New Mexico that contributes to the goals of the Society. For example, successfully funded projects have been awarded for education, research, and conservation projects. Currently we would particularly like to assist in conservation projects.

Requests are reviewed and voted on by the Board of Directors. Individuals and organizations will be notified as to the acceptance or denial of their proposal. If the proposal is unsuccessful, the Society will provide reasons for the denial.

Grants and Donations

Grants are awarded to individual projects with a goal that can be completed within a stated time period and within a specified budget. For example, you can request for a grant to pay for the cost of a specific workshop, or to buy the materials needed for a specific restoration project.

Donations are given to non-profit organizations to support on-going work that meets the objectives and goals of the Native Plant Society. For example, the NPSNM gives annual donations to the 5 main herbaria in the state. The University of New Mexico (UNM) Herbarium applies that money towards its goals of georeferencing (mapping) the specimen label information, with the expertise of New Mexico Natural Heritage (NMNH) to make the information available to the scientific community and the general public.

Award Amounts and Disbursement

Grants and donations are limited to a maximum of $1000. Grant payments may be given over time or in a lump sum. This is decided on a case-by-case basis. Donations are given as a lump sum.
