Kickapoo Valley Reforestation Fund invites proposals for 2011

The Kickapoo Valley Reforestation Fund welcomes proposals for projects that enhance the ecological, economic and social well-being of the Kickapoo Valley and its residents. The KVRF was established through a generous bequest to the University of Wisconsin Foundation by Ralph Nuzum, a long-time businessman and resident of the Kickapoo Valley.

Mr. Nuzum’s intentions were set forth in a 1973 document which stated, in part, that:

“…the donor wishes that the income from the Fund be used to support a model comprehensive land use
forestation, conservation, and rehabilitation project involving an interdisciplinary team cooperating with broadly representative citizens, groups and local leaders in the Kickapoo Valley.”

Proposals are due December 15, 2010. Submit proposals electronically to: Please limit proposals to four (4) typewritten pages. A budget identifying significant needs by category must be completed on the Application Cover Sheet. A brief résumé of key participants, especially the faculty collaborator and the local program manager, should also be attached.
