Environmental, Peace-Building, Community Building and Youth Education Projects – Jul 1

Posted by New Earth Foundation on June 9, 2020

Deadline: July 1, 2020 (Letters of Inquiry)

The New Earth Foundation was founded in 1997 by John Bigelow Loveland, who upon receiving a family inheritance dating back to his great-grandfather, a self-made magnate in nickel mining, decided to donate his inheritance and allocate it for benevolent, peaceful, and harmony-furthering activities.

To that end, NEF welcomes applications for innovative projects with the potential to enhance life on our planet, brighten the future, and further peace. The foundation will award grants in support of pioneering yet practical projects in many fields of endeavor, including but not limited to environmental initiatives that are working to help eliminate pollution and to 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/or strategies that offer economic improvement and opportunities. NEF particularly seeks projects with 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.

To be eligible, candidates must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service. Organizations without such status may apply under an umbrella organization or fiscal sponsor, although the application must be accompanied by a letter of agreement detailing the project and the nature of the sponsoring organization’s support or involvement.

Letters of inquiry are due July 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by October 1, 2020.

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