New Earth Foundation invites applications for environmental, peace projects

The New Earth Foundation was founded in 1997 by John Bigelow Loveland to fund innovative humanitarian projects. Since the beginning, the foundation has supported organizations involved in leading-edge projects concerning education, communication, clean water, and energy sources, spirit-uplifting arts, the preservation of endangered forests and plant species, self-help methods to curb hunger, and in many other fields, helping people around the globe and the earth herself augmenting peace.

To that end, NEF invites applications for innovative projects with the potential to enhance life on our planet, brighten the future, and advance peace. The foundation will award grants in support of pioneering yet practical projects in many endeavors, including but not limited to environmental initiatives that are working to eliminate pollution and save the planet’s ecosystems, community efforts that create models of social sustainability, educational innovations that prepare youth to become the socially responsible leaders of the future, and strategies that offer economic improvement and opportunities. The foundation particularly seeks projects with the potential to be replicated so that excellent ideas and work can multiply and benefit many.

The foundation prioritizes smaller, newer 501(c)(3) organizations so that the gift can make a more significant contribution to the work of the recipient organization.

As defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service, candidates must be tax-exempt.

Letters of inquiry are due July 1, 2023, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a complete application by August 2023.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and previously supported projects, see the New Earth Foundation website.

Deadline: July 1, 2023 (Letters of Inquiry)
