Patagonia: Environmental Program GrantsDeadline: August 31, 2015
Patagonia makes grants to organizations conducting environmental work that identify and work on the root causes of problems and that approach issues with a commitment to long-term change. Funding focuses on organizations that create a strong base of citizen support. Patagonia will support small, grassroots, activist organizations with provocative direct-action agendas, working on multi-pronged campaigns to preserve and protect our environment. Patagonia helps local groups working to protect local habitat, and thinks the individual battles to protect a specific stand of forest, stretch of river, or indigenous wild species are the most effective in raising more complicated issues – particularly those of biodiversity and ecosystem protection – in the public mind. One priority area for Patagonia grants is protecting and restoring native fish populations and the habitat on which they depend.
Patagonia will fund work that:
- is action-oriented
- builds public involvement and support
- is strategic
- focuses on root causes
- accomplishes specific goals and objectives
Amount: The typical grant range is up to $12,000.
