The Foyle Foundation Awards the Heart of Borneo Rainforest Foundation £5000 Toward the Murung Raya Expedition

We are incredibly proud to announce a new major sponsor, the Foyle Foundation, who have awarded us funding through their Small Grants Scheme

 

The Foyle Foundation is an independent grantmaking trust that distributes grants to UK charities. Since it became operational in November 2001, The Foundation has disbursed £41.4M in grants (to the year ending June 2010).

Our Small Grants Scheme is designed to support smaller charities in the UK, especially those working at grass roots and local community level, in any field, across a wide range of activities.

This funding will be used to purchase equipment for the Heart of Borneo project that will have a lasting impact. The grant will therefore be used for the purchase of equipment necessary to build and manage the basecamp, as well as the all important research equipment, such as camera traps. This equipment will be used for future expeditions and so will have a long-lasting value.

Our thanks once again to the Foyle Foundation for its generous support.
