New Earth Foundation Invites Applications for Environmental, Peace Projects

The New Earth Foundation was founded in 1997 by John Bigelow Loveland who upon receiving a family inheritance decided to allocate it to advance peace, harmony, and benevolence.

To that end, NEF invites applications for innovative projects with the potential to enhance life on our planet and 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 the gift can make a more significant contribution to the work of the recipient organization.

Candidates must be tax-exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service. Organizations without such status may apply under an umbrella organization or fiscal sponsor, though 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 February 1, 2022, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by May 2022.

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

Deadline: February 1, 2022
