Miles Fund Grant Requirements
Requests for funds should be compatible with the MCM goals:
- Provide our members and guests the opportunity to enjoy and become educated about nature through hiking.
- Build and maintain trails and shelters for public use.
- Aid in the conservation of wild lands and wildlife, and to protect places of natural beauty.
MCM has received grant requests from a variety of Maryland organizations, including Boy Scout troops, trail conservation groups, several conservancy groups, state and county parks, and environmental centers.
The guidelines and the application form are linked below. Requests are reviewed by our Fund administrator and submitted for approval by the Mountain Club of Maryland Council (officers and board members). If a grant is awarded, there is an expectation that a report be submitted to MCM once the project is completed.
