The Temper of the Times Foundation supports advertising designed to promote the conservation and restoration of native wildlife, plants, and ecosystems in the United States. Grant funds may be used to fund the production of print, radio, or television ads; to pay for advertising space or airtime; or to

Because grants are for wildland ecosystem advertising campaigns, not for general organizational support, they may not be used to cover costs associated with the production of organization newsletters, membership campaigns, or for staff salaries. In addition, the Foundation cannot fund lobbying efforts or candidates for political office.

Eligibility: To be eligible, applicants must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.
