Outdoor clothing company Patagonia has funding of between $2,500 and $15,000 available for projects from organisations that identify and work on the root causes of environmental problems.
Small, grassroots, activist organizations with provocative direct-action agendas, working on multi-pronged campaigns to preserve and protect biodiversity and the environment, can apply for grants to run projects that protect local habitats. Applicants must be able to produce measurable project results, and Patagonia are particularly keen to support efforts that force the government to abide by laws. Creative methods to engage communities to take action, including film, photography and books will only be supported if they are tightly linked to a direct-action campaign on the issue, with specific goals that go beyond education and awareness.
The deadline for applications is 31st August 2017.
