U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, Greenville, SC
For IMMEDIATE RELEASE (February 19, 2019) – The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (Endowment) announced today the launch of its new website. The new site features a clean, uncluttered design, improved functionality and enhanced rich content focused on the Endowment’s mission – to work collaboratively with partners in the public and private sectors to advance systemic, transformative and sustainable change for the health and vitality of the nation’s working forests and forest-reliant communities. The website goes live today, February 19, and is located at the same address: www.usendowment.org
“We are excited about the visually compelling story this website tells about the many initiatives, landscapes, and communities we touch through our programs and partnerships,” says Carlton Owen, Endowment President & CEO. “We hope that visitors gain an appreciation for the breadth and depth of our ongoing work for forests and the rural communities that rely on them.”
In addition to easy navigability, the new website features quick access to information on Endowment grants and current Requests for Proposals (RFPs), with a direct link on the homepage to any open RFPs. Currently, the 2019 Enviva Forest Conservation Fund is open and closes February 28, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. EST as is the call for proposals for the inaugural Forest Innovation Reviews (FIRz). Additionally, The Longleaf Ecosystem Occurrence Database – Field Data Collection RFP closes March 18, 2019.
The new website will be updated on a regular basis with news of project and partnership announcements, program updates, and other relevant topics. It also provides the Endowment’s latest Tweets on Twitter and a link to the recently completed interactive guide, State of America’s Forests. The website also highlights the stunning nature photography of Greenville, SC-based Mac Stone. Stone’s photographs of forested landscapes capture the underlying motivation of the Endowment’s work: healthy, productive working forests for people and the environment.
