Foundation / Corporation
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for innovative projects to educate and inspire individuals, communities, and organizations to engage in environmental activism. Funding is intended for pilot, model, and demonstration projects that seek to change attitudes and behaviors about environmental issues.
The Foundation particularly encourages and nurtures environmental action through:
- Supporting the present generation of environmental activists, whether professionals or volunteers through education, training and other activities
- Educating and engaging the next generation of environmentalists with a special interest in supporting the training of those who are teaching that generation
- Strengthening the infrastructure of the environmental movement with a particular focus on efforts at the grassroots and statewide levels
- Activating new constituencies, particularly those focused on environmental equity issues

-Capital building projects
-Grants to individuals
-Scholarships or internships (except as part of a program)
-Direct service programs, especially when outside New York City
-Projects that are local in focus and unlikely to be replicated

In 2017 the Foundation will limit its new grantmaking to projects in the Environmental program area. Grants will be made at the Fall meeting. Initial letters of inquiry must be received before September 1, 2017. Projects in the Mental Health and AIDS program areas will be considered during the 2018 grantmaking cycle.
To apply, send a brief letter to the Executive Director describing the organization and the work for which funds are being sought, along with a budget and evidence of tax-exempt status. If the activity falls within the current scope of the Foundation’s interests, the applicant will be asked to supply additional information as required.
Should the Foundation decline to support a proposal, applicants are asked to wait at least one year before reapplying for any purpose.
