Grants generally starting at $25,000 to USA non-profit organizations that are working to tackle the root causes of global warming in ways that both engage a broad public and recognize the catalytic roles culture and creativity can play in these endeavors.

These grants are specifically intended to support mitigation and adaptation projects that combine climate-related work with civic engagement and culture.

GrantWatch ID#: 149040

Estimated Size of Grant:

Applicants may request $25,000 to $150,000 over one or two years. The project budget can also include up to 15% in overhead costs.

Term of Contract:

One to two years.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must either be 501(c)3 or be fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)3.

Organizations working in the realm of environmental science, policy, advocacy, justice, or other climate related fields can seek support for projects that in some way employ civic engagement, culture, and creativity to strengthen the effectiveness of their campaigns and strategies.

Similarly, arts organizations that are partnering with scientists or climate facing organizations to effect change in this arena are also eligible to seek support.

Each applicant can submit only one proposal.

Requests are for project support, not general support. However, projects can be at any stage of development—from early R&D to long-standing work.

The following types of projects will not be considered for funding:
- Capital or endowment campaigns
- Scholarships or fellowships for individuals
- Academic research

The Fund encourage applications from organizations/efforts led by, and based in, communities of color, low-income communities, and other communities on the front lines of climate change.
