Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?

Applications are now open for the Lauren Townsend Memorial Wildlife Fund to inspire people and mobilize resources to strengthen their community.
The Lauren Townsend Memorial Wildlife Fund was established in 1999 by the family of Lauren Townsend, a vibrant and inspiring young woman who was a class valedictorian and co-captain of the girls’ volleyball team at Columbine High School.
Lauren was one of 13 victims killed in the shootings on April 20,1999. The fund awards grants to nonprofit organizations that focus on animal welfare or wildlife preservation.
Note: If in the last three years they have been awarded two or more grants from the Lauren Townsend Memorial Wildlife Fund, they are not eligible for funding this year. They are welcome to reapply in the next year’s funding cycle.
