TogetherGreen Invites Applications for Innovation Grants
Deadline: May 1, 2011

TogetherGreen, a program of the National Audubon Society and Toyota, is accepting applications for its Innovation Grants program, which provides support for creative and ambitious projects that engage diverse communities in finding innovative solutions to environmental challenges.

Innovation Grants fund projects that conserve or restore habitat and protect species, improve water quality or quantity, and reduce the threat of global warming; engage new and diverse audiences in conservation actions; and inspire and use innovative approaches and technologies to engage people and achieve conservation results.

To be eligible for an Innovation Grant, the applying organization must constitute a branch, office, or other operational unit of the National Audubon Society (including national or state offices and field units such as Audubon centers and sanctuaries), or be an Audubon certified chapter or Audubon certified chapter-run center or sanctuary. Independent Audubon entities that wish to participate in a cooperative arrangement with the National Audubon Society for this purpose are also eligible. (Organizations that are interested in applying but are not part of the Audubon network should contact the Innovation Grants program manager.) Applicants must be 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charities and have a commitment from at least one non-Audubon partner organization to serve as a collaborator.

In 2011, the program will award at least forty grants, ranging from $5,000 to $80,000 each, with an average grant size of $25,000. In addition, the program will be offering three to five planning grants of $5,000 or less each.
