Gray Family Foundation
Grants of up to $25,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations, schools, colleges, government agencies, and tribal entities for activities that promote K-12 environmental education. Funding may be used for capacity building projects, professional development and training, or field experiences. Gray FF’s Environmental Education program seeks to promote the inclusion of quality environmental education in formal and informal K-12 environments to increase opportunities for youth to connect with and learn in the outdoors.
This year, Gray Family Foundation seeks proposals that stimulate or promote the teaching of environmental education in formal and informal K-12 educational environments to increase outdoor experiences for youth – either during the school day, as part of distance or virtual learning, or as a service or opportunity offered to families and youth outside of the context of the school setting. Gray Family Foundation’s Environmental Education Grant Program is focused on projects/programs that benefit 3rd-8th grade youth.
