EORA strives to fulfill its purpose in building relationships with youth nonprofits, by doing so we are in hopes of allowing youth to experience the great outdoors with guidance and leadership.
Each region (Mid-Atlantic, New England and the Southeast) will have access to grant funding of up to $1,500.00 with a maximum of $500.00 per grant. Each applicant must be a charitable non-profit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status. This program began in a small way to reflect the philosophy of its membership by encouraging the engagement of our youth with the great outdoors through educational activities.
