Grant Recipient SignMany United Plant Savers members do not realize that not only do we seek out grants, donations, and other forms of funding, but we are also the source of funding for several community replanting projects each year in the form of The United Plant Savers Community Grants.

In order to qualify, grant proposals must come from a current UpS member, be community oriented, educational in nature, and there must be some return to United Plant Savers and our mission.  This can be in the form of seeds, research results, or reporting of the project that could be of value to UpS and our members.  For more specific guidelines please visit our Community Grant page.
