Patagonia Accepting Applications for Environmental Grants Program

Deadline: August 31, 2002

Outdoor clothing company Patagonia provides funding for environmental work, with a preference for organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems and approach issues with a commitment to long-term change.

Patagonia funds work that is action-oriented; builds public involvement and support; is strategic; focuses on root causes; and accomplishes specific goals and objectives. The company supports small, grassroots activist organizations with direct-action agendas. Most grants are in the range of $3,000 to $8,000.

The company does not fund general environmental education efforts; research (unless it is in direct support of a developed plan for specific action to alleviate an environmental problem); land acquisition; endowment funds; political campaigns; or organizations without 501(c)(3) status.

For further information on submitting an application, see the Patagonia Web site.
