ARG UK 100% Fund

The ARG UK 100% Fund has been launched to provide small grants to ARGs involved in practical conservation work.  ARG UK realises that ARG volunteers are often best placed to target money effectively for the benefit of amphibian and reptile conservation.  Sometimes small amounts of money can make a big difference locally, but nevertheless can be hard to find.  The sort of projects funded might include the creation of new ponds or the purchase of tools/materials to help with habitat management. 

Money for the 100% Fund has been kindly donated to ARG UK.  ItĂs called Š100%Ă because all money donated goes into funding conservation projects ű not on administration or overheads.

The ARG UK 100% Fund is open only to groups affiliated to ARG UK.

  • Grants will be awarded twice per year; the closing dates for applications are September 30 and December 31 2008. Grants will be paid to successful applicants after the ARG UK regional representatives meeting in October and at the Herpetofauna WorkersĂ Meeting in spring 2009.

  • The maximum award will be approximately ˙250.

  • Priority will be given to projects that give the best value for money for amphibian and reptile conservation.

  • Projects that include funding from other sources or involve partnership working will be looked upon favourably.

  • The number and size of grants given to projects will depend on the amount of money donated to the fund over a twelve-month period and the number of applications received.

This fund will not cover a groupĂs administrative or training expenses.

Application procedure
