About TFN Special Project Grants
Thanks to substantial bequests generously entrusted to us over the years, the TFN is pleased to support member-driven initiatives just like this that further our mission to help people understand, enjoy, and protect nature in the city.
Please note: TFN Special Projects are not funded by membership fees or general donations, but are only made possible by specifically designated donations and several substantial bequests we have received over the years.
