Patagonia: Environmental Work Spring CycleDeadline: April 30, 2014
Patagonia funds environmental work and is most interested in making grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems and that approach issues with a commitment to long-term change. Patagonia funds small, grassroots, activist organizations with provocative direct-action agendas, working on multi-pronged campaigns to preserve and protect our environment. This includes local groups working to protect local habitats.

- build public involvement and support

- specific in their goals and objectives
Amount: The typical grant range is up to $12,000.
