Other Funding Opportunities

  • The Fund for Shared Insight seeks applications for the practice of listening. The Listen for Good (L4G) initiative is focused on applying a semi-standard survey instrument, which includes using the Net Promoter System employed widely in customer feedback circles, to the nonprofit beneficiary context. Eighteen-month grants of $30,000, as well as access to technical assistance, will be awarded for program implementation. Deadline June 29
  • The Woodward & Curran Foundation invites applications to address water issues. The foundation’s Impact Fund will award $100,000 over three years to an innovative project that applies or advances technology by addressing a water issue (e.g., water, wastewater, stormwater, etc.) related to climate change. Deadline June 30
  • The National Geographic Society is seeking proposals for human migration programs. Funding requests should be less than $30,000; however, applicants may request up to $70,000.

The NextGen program will issue a single grant of $90,000 to fund work in the 2019 calendar year, by an existing or new program that will measurably reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Projects must be measured by metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), either by preventing the emission of those gases or by sequestering gases presently in the atmosphere. Deadline July 11

Grants of up to $600,000 will be awarded over two or three years in support of research designed to build, test, and increase understanding of approaches to reducing inequality in youth outcomes based on race, ethnicity, economic standing, or immigrant origin status.
