The Foundation seeks partnerships with local organizations that are directly engaged with preserving and enhancing the local communities and fisheries. The Foundation provides grants to directly support priority conservation needs, community projects and educational efforts in important angling communities around the world.  

Please visit Our Programs for more information.

Our Guidelines and Priorities: The Foundation provides grants from $250 to $5,000 for an individual project.  The Foundation has limited resources and places higher priority on projects that: 1) Benefit to fisheries and habitats; 2) enhance our target communities through schools, education or other civic needs; and 3) include partnerships with the lodges or angling operations that Yellow Dog works with; and 4) provides ability to leverage additional funding. We also value projects in which our grants can serve as a catalyst for other sources of funding, including volunteer labor, donations of materials and equipment, and other funding sources.

We accept inquires for grants in the destinations that Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures conducts its business and sends their clients, nationally and internationally.  Please visit for a complete list of destinations.  We encourage applicants to partner with the local lodges that we work with. 

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have questions. The Foundation views its grantees and partners and will work with you through all phases of the project.


If you think your organization, project, event or community fits within our guidelines, please submit an online application. Applications are accepted on an on-going basis.  


Our partners are key to the Foundation’s success.  To that end the Foundation will work with grantees through all phases of the project.  Grantees will be required to submit appropriate progress reports and a final report for the funding they receive.  Site visits may be part of the evaluation to gauge impact on conservation and target communities.
