Ray C. Anderson Foundation Issues RFP for $100,000 Grant to Help Reduce Global Warming

The NextGen Committee of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation has issued a call for proposals for a single $100,000 grant to fund work in the 2021 calendar year for a new or existing program that helps to reduce global warming, whether through direct carbon avoidance, climate communication, climate education, industry engagement, or other activity.

The Ray C. Anderson Foundation is a private family foundation committed to advancing the legacy of its namesake by supporting environmental sustainability initiatives. Anderson’s five grandchildren, along with their spouses, comprise the foundation’s NextGen Committee, which makes recommendations to the board of trustees for worthwhile grants and initiatives.

In 2019, the NextGen committee awarded a $100,000 grant to the Inga Foundation for its "Land for Life" program, and in 2018 its awarded a $90,000 grant to Second Nature.

Grants are only awarded to 501(c)(3) charities in the United States.  Those interested in applying should visit the Anderson Foundation website to review the proposal guidelines.
