Grant to a USA nonprofit organization to help reduce global warming. Funding is intended for new and existing programs that will reduce global warming through climate communication, education, direct carbon avoidance, or industry engagement. The program is intended to measurably reduce existing or avoid future emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria:

The NextGen Committee will primarily judge proposals on the potential to help reverse global warming. The Committee is looking for solutions that measurably and directly reduce existing or avoid future emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, science-backed projects that are scalable to other initiatives, and creative, environmentally based solutions that improve social equity. Proposals will be given strong consideration if they are out of the research phase and currently being implemented or close to implementation, if they calculate significant reductions in greenhouse gases, and if they demonstrate meaningful environmental and social co-benefits. Proposals will not be considered that only focus on communication or climate education without measurable reduction of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), that focus solely on a localized area without scalability, or that are early in the research phase and narrow in scope.

The best projects will include:

  1. Direct and Measurable Reduction of C02e: Strong proposals of this kind will demonstrate high-quality estimations of direct CO2e reductions. The Environmental Protection Agency has a greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator that may be useful in calculating these estimates. An organization may prefer to utilize a different CO2e calculator or estimate carbon savings in other ways. So long as an organization’s methodology for such estimations is clearly stated, applicants may utilize any tools they wish.
  2. Scalable and Creative Solutions That Connect Different Sectors or Regions: The Committee is looking for innovative solutions that will spark new lines of thinking and connect ideas across sectors to make a major impact on reversing global warming. Therefore, proposals should contain solutions that are easily scalable and replicable across sectors or in different geographic regions.
  3. Environmentally Based Solutions That Improve Social Equity: Social equity is essential for effective climate action. Social equity in areas such as women’s education, Indigenous People’s land rights, racial equity, and more could result in a massive reduction in emissions as well as improved livelihoods across the globe. The Committee is looking for proposals that have positive social impacts in addition to reductions in CO2e.
