Grants of up to $5,000 and in-kind donations to USA nonprofits, groups, and businesses to conserve, protect, and restore important wildlife habitats in ponds, rivers, swamps, wetlands, and streams. Consideration will be given to both new and ongoing projects. Applications are invited from innovative groups in local communities working to make their corner of the world more sustainable.

The PIG Difference Grant Program supports projects that improve the sustainability of waterways, watersheds, estuaries, tidal pools or wetlands, or the wildlife that are directly affected by them. Most anything that improves the sustainability of a body of water will be considered. Plans must be for hands-on projects in local communities.

Combinations of cash and in-kind donations of New Pig products are preferred. However, consideration will be given to grants for one or the other.
