Patagonia Accepting Applications for Grassroots Environmental Campaigns
Outdoor clothing and gear company Patagonia provides support for environmental work through grants to nonprofit organizations.
The company’s environmental grant program supports small, grassroots organizations that have provocative direct-action agendas and are working on multi-pronged campaigns to preserve and protect the environment. Grants of up to $12,000 will be awarded for projects that are action-oriented, build public involvement and support, focus on root causes, and demonstrate a commitment to long-term change.
The company does not fund organizations without 501(c)(3) status or an eligible fiscal sponsor. Grants are not provided for general environmental education efforts; land acquisition, land trusts, or conservation easements; research (unless it is in direct support of a developed plan for specific action to alleviate an environmental problem); environmental conferences; endowment funds; political campaigns; or green building projects.
Funding is limited to programs in the United States, Canada, Japan, Chile, Argentina, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Norway, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark, Belgium, and Austria.
In addition to the corporate grant program, each Patagonia retail store administers a local grants program. Retail store grant applications are accepted year-round.
Visit the Patagonia website for complete program guidelines, application requirements, information on previous grant recipients, and the retail store locator.
DEADLINE: APRIL 30, 2015
