Conservation Alliance Announces $550,000 in Grant Funding for Summer 2011

Thanks to all of you who submitted your votes for the Conservation Alliance's Summer 2011 Funding Cycle. Eighteen organizations will receive between $20,000 - $35,000 in funding that will enable them to fight for protection of open lands and scenic waterways.

HOW VOTING WORKS: Each member company gets one vote per cycle (2x/yr). At NEMO, the ballot is passed around to all employees for their votes. This cycle, we decided to open it up to customers as well. We allowed those interested to submit their ballot, which was then added to our compilation of employee ballots. We tabulated the results based on the most popular, and submitted that overall ballot to the Conservation Alliance.

This year, The Conservation Alliance will contribute more than $1 million to organizations working to permanently protect wild places. Thanks for your input.
