Pisces Foundation Environmental Education Grant

Monday, August 26, 2019

The Pisces Foundation is excited to announce a new funding opportunity designed to strengthen and build the capacity and cultural relevance of environmental education at scale, recognizing that when kids gain the environmental know-how they need to thrive in our rapidly changing world, we’ll see smarter decisions, stronger communities, and daily actions that improve their well-being and our planet. Pisces is now accepting project inquiries for a round of grants that will range in amount from approximately $5,000 up to $150,000 for a 12-month period. We will award grants to nonprofit organizations and their collaborators that seek to build the capacity, cultural relevance, and professional development of the environmental education field in their given state or region. Eligible nonprofit organizations in this category are often referred to as backbone organizations working to support, strengthen, and further develop the field throughout their region.

Because not every backbone organization has the same capacity, the grant program is designed to support organizations at varying levels of capacity in their work to:

  • Enable the organization to be more effective;
  • Organize network members or stakeholders toward a collective initiative; or
  • Activate an initiative that is already enabled and organized but needs the catalytic funding to get to the next stage.

Project inquiries are due on August 26, 2019, at 12 p.m. PT at piscesfoundation.org/eerfp.
