Natural Climate Solutions Accelerator Grant

The Nature Conservancy is announcing a request for proposals for two additional rounds of grant funding for projects with potential to substantially increase the use of natural climate solutions through the U.S. Natural Climate Solutions Accelerator program. This grant-funding program is focused on helping kick-start innovative and scalable approaches to capturing greenhouse gas emissions by using natural and working lands in the United States.

Partnership for Resilient Communities

This year the Institute for Sustainable Communities is growing the Partnership for Resilient Communities with a new round of funding that will allow us to add additional partners to the program’s cohort. This round of the PRC will include a six-month planning phase and a two-year implementation phase. This request for proposals is seeking 6-8 organizations to participate in the six-month planning phase, which will prepare them to advocate for and implement equitable climate resilience projects in their communities.

Ford Foundation Grants

The Ford Foundation makes grants that support the three I's: Institutions, Ideas, and Individuals. Having recently done away with their siloed grants program, the Ford Foundation accepts grant proposals that start in seven program areas, or entry points, as they say.

The seven program areas:

  • Civic Engagement and Government
  • Creativity and Free Expression
  • Future of Work(ers)
  • Gender, Racial, and Ethnic Justice
  • Just Cities and Regions
  • Natural Resources and Climate Change
  • Technology and Society

ecoTech Grants

ecoTech™ Grants were created to combat the notion that students needed to choose between “the screen” or “the green” and to encourage educators and students to explore the role technology can play in designing and implementing solutions to some of our most pressing environmental challenges. We believe that technology can present innovative ways to address environmental challenges – and that when dealing with digital natives, we do ourselves a disservice by asking them to unplug.

GreenWorks! Grants

Project Learning Tree offers GreenWorks! grants up to $1,000 to schools and youth organizations for environmental service-learning projects that link classroom learning to the real world. Students implement an action project they help design to green their school or to improve an aspect of their neighborhood’s environment.

Patagonia Grants

Patagonia supports environmental organizations with bold, direct-action agendas and a commitment to long-term change. Because we believe that the most direct path to real change is through building grassroots momentum, our funding focuses on organizations that have or can create a strong base of support.
