Sponsored Grant Program:  Organizations or individuals may fund a research project of their choosing, to be administered by the TREE Fund.  The project must be compatible with the mission of the TREE Fund, and funding must be secured prior to release of solicitation of proposals.  Project administration is managed by the TREE Fund, and an administrative fee applies.
