The Conservation Fund was put in place to fund initiatives that may not have qualified for the Gilly Fund but were determined to be worthy of funding regardless. The Conservation Fund is drawn from the operating account. With income and expenses varying year over year, the fund's size fluctuates. This means that while a project may have merit, funding can't be guaranteed. Please refer to the application process and the application form
