Grants of up to $25,000 to Alaska, California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii nonprofits for projects that promote healthy ocean ecosystems and improve water quality on the West Coast of the United States. Funding is intended for new grantees only; current or previous grantees are not eligible.
The Campbell Foundation’s Healthy Ocean Ecosystems program strives to identify opportunities in the field that a) are gaining political momentum, b) present a great opportunity to leverage resources of all kinds, and c) are innovative from a business and social perspective.
The Foundation allocates the resources of its Pacific Coast office to projects in these areas:
- Sustainable Fisheries (Domestic/Western US)
- Protection of Special Places (Domestic/Western US)
- Land-Sea Connection/Water Quality (Northern California)
- Communication of Ocean Conservation Issues
The Foundation is also increasingly concerned with models that predict the serious impact climate change will have on water resources in the western United States. It allocates a portion of its resources to bring together willing participants from competing interests to push for management changes that address these models.
Proposals are reviewed on a number of factors, including, but not limited to:
- Program effectiveness
- Board giving
- Completeness of proposal
- Organizational financial health and sustainability
- % the ask is compared to the organizational or project budget
- Size of organizational/project budget
- Ability to adhere to cycle guidelines
