Patagonia’s Corporate Grants Program: Supporting Small Grassroots Activist Organizations

Deadline: 31 August 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.

Funding Information

The funding range for a corporate grant is typically between $10,000 and $20,000, depending on the specific needs of the project.

Criteria

  • Patagonia funds work that:
  • Patagonia does not fund
    • Organizations with 501(c)(3) status or a comparable fiscal sponsor
    • trail creation, maintenance, or restoration
    • any dam renovations, human-assisted fish passage infrastructure or hatchery programs
