Grants of $2,000 each to two California museums that are working to creatively address significant environmental issues. These grants are intended to provide seed money to support an innovative museum project that will: embody principles of sustainability and resiliency; be environmentally sound and economically beneficial; address an environmental challenge and seek to provide a local solution; demonstrate systems thinking and approaches to problem solving that result in, or proceed towards, institutional change; be related to the greening of museum operations or programming, engaging the community or adopting new approaches to institutional thinking and planning; and challenge assumptions about what it means to be “green.”
The mini-grants are an extension of the Green Museum Initiative's belief that museums are catalysts for environmental sustainability. Collaboration among partners is encouraged. Community engagement is also important to successful projects.
Projects that focus on the local or regional ecology are preferred.
Funds may be used towards hard costs for the project and/or personnel time for deep thinking and planning.
GrantWatch ID#: 146798
Projects supported by grant funds must be initiated and completed within one year of the mini-grant, and all grant funds must be expended during that time period (December 2014 - December 2015).
