Community Grant Program

The Butler Family Foundation’s Community Grants Program awards two-year grants for general operating support or for specific projects and programs. 

Focus Area - Environment

We seek to promote the responsible stewardship of land and water resources in Minnesota by funding programs in land protection and sustainable land use; water quality protection and improvement; and efforts which integrate land and water protection strategies. We seek to educate Minnesota's young people about the importance of land and water resources by funding educational programs that focus on land protection, sustainable land use, and water quality protection and improvement.

Types of Support

We award two-year Community Grants for either general operating support or specific projects and programs. Minimum grant sizes are $30,000 per year for general operating support and $20,000 per year for projects and programs.
