We want to express our deepest gratitude to the Upstate community for the incredible response to our SCNPS Upstate Chapter Grants Program. Your enthusiasm and commitment to protecting and restoring our native plants and educating our communities has been truly inspiring.

Due to an unexpected flurry of applications and the approval of nearly all of them, we have reached the limit of our grant funding for this fiscal year. As a result, we are temporarily pausing the acceptance of new applications for the Grants Program. This pause allows us to ensure that we can fully support the incredible projects that have been proposed and are about to commence.

Looking Ahead

  • The Grants Program will be reintroduced at the start of the next fiscal year. We encourage those interested in applying to begin preparing their proposals in anticipation of the program’s return.
  • Updates on the program’s reopening and any adjustments to the application process will be announced well in advance to provide ample preparation time.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit our Upstate Chapter page on the SCNPS website to explore other ways you can get involved and support our mission. Your passion for native plant conservation and environmental education is what drives the success of our initiatives, and we look forward to continuing this journey together.
