Patagonia’s Media Grants Program: Supporting Grassroots Groups

Deadline: 31 August 2017

Applications are open for Patagonia’s Media Grants Program to support grassroots groups that also use film as a form of activism.

This program specifically funds environmental nonprofits that use media, mostly film, as a tool tightly linked to direct-action campaigns.

Patagonia funds only environmental work, most interestingly in making grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems and that approach issues with a commitment to long-term change.

Through Media Grants Program, Patagonia fund work that:

  • is tied to an environmental campaign
  • goes beyond education and awareness building of the general public
  • is designed with a call to action for a targeted audience
  • is a tool to accomplish goals within a specific environmental campaign strategy

Funding Information

The funding range for a Media Grant is typically between $15,000 and $30,000, depending on the specific needs of the project.

Criteria

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
  • land acquisition, land trusts, or conservation easements
  • research, unless it is in direct support of a developed plan for specific action to alleviate an environmental problem
  • environmental conferences
  • endowment funds
  • political campaigns
  • green building projects

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted via given website.

Eligible Country: United States
