Invoicing (updated 10/13/2020)

During the statewide shelter-in-place orders, the Conservancy is only processing electronic invoices. We also require hard copy invoices to be mailed in. Please see the instructions below and contact your Project Manager with any questions regarding invoicing or other processes.

1. Prepare a single PDF file with:

All combined into one file, in that order.


2. Email the invoice and the PDF of the combined documents from Step 1 to  In your email, please include your project name and your Conservancy Project Manager’s name!


3. We are signing invoices using DocuSign.  The approved invoice will be sent to you by your Project Manager in an email requesting a digital signature. You do not need any software to sign, just internet connection. It is very simple. Please keep an eye out for that email and respond quickly.


4. Please also mail a paper copy of your entire invoice, and all back-up documentation and the progress report, to the Coastal Conservancy at 1515 Clay St., Suite 1000, Oakland, CA 94612. Do not send with UPS or any service that requires signature for delivery (we are not there). This copy is for our long term archive. If producing a paper invoice is a significant burden right now, please talk to your Project Manager.
