The Woodard & Curran Foundation, the charitable arm of integrated engineering, science, and operations company Woodard & Curran, is accepting applications from nonprofits organizations for projects focused on protecting and promoting clean water sources.
To that end, the foundation will award grants through two distinct tracks:
1) Track 1 Grants: One-year grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to support projects dedicated to addressing the problem of water scarcity through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) initiatives. This track is limited to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that meet the foundation's general eligibility requirements and are located in states where Woodard & Curran, Inc. either has an office or operates a treatment facility (California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, or Wyoming).
2) Track 2 Impact Grants: A three-year grant of up to $100,000 will be awarded to an innovative project that applies technology to a water issue related to climate change. This opportunity is open to all U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits that meet the foundation's general eligibility requirements.
To be eligible, applicants must be based in the United States and be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
