Grants to Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia nonprofit organizations, municipalities, public agencies, and tribes to protect natural resources in the Pacific Northwest region. Initial inquiries are due March 15. The Foundation seeks to protect the region’s natural environment by promoting responsible human activities and sustainable communities.
The Foundation’s funding region is defined as the Emerald Corridor, consisting of the urban area west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. Within that geographic range, a priority will be placed on projects and initiatives that promote sustainability within the three major metropolitan regions anchored by the cities of Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC.

The Foundation requires current grantees to complete a 12-month grant year and to file a final report before reapplying. Submission of the final report completes all requirements of the current grant, allowing the grantee to submit a new Proposal Inquiry.
To be eligible, US organizations must have a current nonprofit tax status under the Internal Revenue Act. Applicants must have a 501(c)(3) determination letter, or identify themselves as a validly organized and operating municipal corporation, public agency, or Native American tribe.
Canadian applicants must have a Canadian Certificate of Incorporation and charity registration documents to be eligible.
Charitable grantees sometimes contract to provide fiscal sponsorship for projects of other groups. However, such relationships are strictly between the grantee and the other groups. The charitable grantee is responsible for administering the grant, for ensuring that no funds are misspent, and for achieving the objectives described in the proposal. Organizations that have applied for charitable tax status are not eligible to apply for a grant from The Bullitt Foundation until their charitable status has been acknowledged in writing by the federal government.
The Bullitt Foundation does not make grants to individuals.
Please note that the Bullitt Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals, and inquiries submitted by hardcopy, mail, email or fax will not be considered for a grant.
The Bullitt Foundation completes two grant cycles per year. Inquiries are due by March 15 to be considered for the Fall Docket, and September 15 for the Spring Docket. Grant applications are due May 1 and November 1 for organizations invited to apply by a Program Officer. Applications must be submitted to our Online Grantee Portal no later than midnight Pacific Time, on the deadline date.
If the deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a US federal holiday, the submission deadline is the next business day.
Please allow up to six months for staff and the board of trustees to thoroughly review applications and documents. Applicants will be sent email confirmation when proposals are submitted.
