In 2018, the NextGen Committee at the Atlanta-based Ray C. Anderson Foundation, a private family foundation committed to advancing the legacy of its namesake by supporting environmental sustainability initiatives, issued a Request for Proposals focused on measurably reducing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, ultimately awarding one $90,000 grant.
Building on the success of that process, and with the desire to increase the breadth of quality proposals, the committee is issuing a new call for proposals for projects that can help reverse global warming, whether through direct carbon avoidance, climate communication, climate education, industry engagement, or other means. Under this call, the foundation will award a single grant of $100,000.
Only proposals submitted by an organization based in the United States and recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity by the Internal Revenue Service (with the organization’s tax determination letter included as an attachment) will be considered.
Proposals are due by July 12, 2019. Finalists will be notified by September 11, with the final decision to be made by November 6.
Email any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries by phone or to any email address other than the one listed above will disqualify an applicant.
