The Clif Family Foundation was established in 2006 to support grassroots groups with inspiring ideas and limited funds.
To that end, the foundation welcomes applications for its Small Grants program. Through the program, grants will be awarded in support of mission-driven organizations and/or projects in the areas of the environment, food and agriculture, preventative approach to people’s health, and sustainable community development.
Priority will be given to applicants that address two or more funding priorities at the same time, which include strengthening the food system, enhancing equitable community health outcomes, and safeguarding the environment and natural resources; demonstrate strong community ties; and operate within viable and clearly defined plans for positive change.
To be eligible, applicants must be based in the U.S. and be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or have a fiscal sponsor with such status.
See the Clif Family Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
