SANTA ANA, Ca., March 27, 2024 – As the deadline of March 31st, 2024 draws near, B.A.S.S. Nation Clubs are reminded to submit their applications for the AFTCO x B.A.S.S. Nation Conservation Grant Program. This initiative, continuing its support for conservation endeavors nationwide, aims to provide essential funds to approved freshwater bass conservation projects proposed by B.A.S.S. Nation clubs.

Launched in 2018, the Conservation Grant Program has been instrumental in the aid of numerous conservation projects, thanks to the generous contributions from AFTCO. With a total contribution exceeding $120,000 in grants to date, this partnership underscores a shared commitment to preserving and enhancing local fisheries. 

The collaborative efforts between AFTCO and B.A.S.S. Nation Conservation have significantly advanced community and youth-oriented conservation initiatives. By fostering these projects, both organizations align with their overarching goals of environmental stewardship and community engagement.

B.A.S.S. Nation Clubs are urged to finalize and submit their applications before the approaching deadline. This presents an invaluable opportunity to secure funding and make a tangible difference in freshwater bass conservation efforts across the nation.

You can submit your conservation proposal HERE.  The deadline for entries is March 31, 2024. Proposals will be judged by a panel that includes representatives from B.A.S.S. and AFTCO. Please direct any questions to Gene Gilliland at ggilliland@bassmaster.com.
