About this grant

The Institute for Conservation Leadership is a national technical assistance provider that builds the capacity of environmental organizations through a blended approach of training, consulting, facilitating, and coaching. With previous Mott support, the grantee helped strengthen freshwater groups in the Great Lakes and Southeast by assisting with strategic planning, fundraising, leadership development, board engagement, and other organizational development needs. With this renewal, the institute will focus its services on more intensive support to organizations and coalitions addressing high priority freshwater restoration and protection issues in the Great Lakes and southeastern regions of the United States.
