Deadline: 30 April 2017
Applications are open for Patagonia’s Corporate Grants Program to fund environmental work that takes place within the United States and is either national in scope or not located near one of their U.S. retail stores. It is a broad program that essentially encompasses all projects that do not fall within one of their International, Retail, Media or World Trout grants programs.
The Corporate Grants Program supports small grassroots activist organizations with provocative direct-action agendas, working strategically on multipronged campaigns to preserve and protect our environment. Patagonia helps local groups that work to protect local habitats and frontline communities through bold, original actions.
Patagonia is most interested in making corporate grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems and approach issues with a commitment to long-term change.
The funding range for a corporate grant is typically between $10,000 and $20,000, depending on the specific needs of the project.

- is action-oriented

- is happening in these countries only: United States, Canada, Japan, Chile, Argentina, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Norway, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark, Belgium, Austria, Australia and the Czech Republic.
