Patagonia: Media Grants Program

Deadline: August 31, 2019

Through its own environmental campaigns, Patagonia has witnessed the power of film to transform audiences into activists. To support grassroots groups that also use film as a form of activism, Patagonia created a Media Grants Program. This program specifically funds environmental nonprofits that use media, mostly film, as a tool tightly linked to direct-action campaigns.

Patagonia looks for groups using media as a strategic tool to advance a campaign that is in line with its general grants program (for more on the general grants program see: https://www.patagonia.com/grant-guidelines.html). The project must outline how using media is the most appropriate avenue as a call to action for a targeted audience and how it fits into the overall strategy of the campaign efforts.

Through the Media Grants Program, Patagonia funds work that:

  • Is tied to an environmental campaign
  • Goes beyond education and awareness building of the general public
  • Is designed with a call to action for a targeted audience
  • Is a tool to accomplish goals within a specific environmental campaign strategy

Amount: Grants typically range from $15,000-$30,000.

Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations.
