Eileen Fisher is inviting applications for its Supporting Women in Environmental Justice grants program.
According to the company, women and girls around the globe are the most vulnerable to climate change but have the firsthand experience to solve it. Linking these two issues is essential to accelerating progress toward improving the status and rights of women and the health of our planet.
To that end, grants ranging between $10,000 and $40,000 will be awarded to nonprofits providing direct services and programs with potential to increase women’s participation in decision-making; train them in climate change adaptation, mitigation, and advocacy; and engage them in sustainable economic activity. Executive leadership must reflect the demographics of the program’s beneficiaries, and the program itself should be generated by and/or co-designed with the communities it serves
To be eligible, applicants must be recognized as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Organizations without 501(c)(3) status may apply with a fiscal sponsor provided they meet all other eligibility criteria and upload financials representing their operations. There are no geographic restrictions.
Applications will be accepted beginning April 1, 2020.
