2017 Grant Application Invitation

The E. Kneale Dockstader Foundation, a charitable public foundation formed in honor of E. Kneale Dockstader, announces its 2017 grant funding round.  Applications are due on April 3, 2017 for southern Chester County projects that enhance the natural environment, and environmental (scientific/engineering) scholarships.  

The Foundation’s mission is to make connections with and build understanding of our environment, encourage programs that enhance our natural environment, and reclaim a common sense of our environment in southern Chester County.  

Project applicants will describe not only what they propose to do, but how they will involve others in the community who will be a part of a truly successful problem solving enhancement to the environment.  Competitive grant applications will address underlying issues and not merely treat symptoms. 

Scholarship applicants must demonstrate their intentions and commitment to further their environmental education with the goal of implementing that education for the benefit of the environment.  Ties to the region are an important factor in scholarship evaluation. 

If you know of other persons or organizations who might be interested in filing an application with us, please pass this invitation along.  This invitation may be copied, faxed, or reproduced electronically.  We wish to reach the widest possible audience. 

The Foundation has adopted guidelines for the preparation of applications.  These may be used by prospective applicants to determine whether their projects fit with the Foundation’s mission.  You can get a copy of the guidelines and/or application information by clicking here.   

If you need more information, please contact Bill Stullken, Foundation Secretary: Phone 484-748-0050, Email: dockstader@seccra.org.
