We will only consider requests from eligible non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations for:
- The development or significant expansion of programs that meet our desired outcomes.
- General operating support for organizations whose core work fits our mission. Matching funds or other conditions may be required for these grants.
Desired Outcome: An environmentally healthy City of Detroit, Metropolitan Detroit region, and Great Lakes Ecosystem.
Desired Outcome: Improved water quality in the Great Lakes basin, especially the watersheds impacting Metro Detroit and Bayfield, Ontario, through the elimination of polluted run-off and other threats, resiliency to climate change, and individual and institutional stewardship.
The Foundation will consider support for activities that:
- Promote “green” infrastructure, primarily through low-impact development, to achieve community development as well as water quality goals;
- Inform and engage individuals, business and government about how their daily activities, choices and policies can help improve their watershed;
- Improve binational cooperation and policies on the Canadian and U.S. sides of the border to improve water quality; and
- Align environmental research, policy and practice to work toward a healthy Great Lakes.
Environmental Health, Justice & Equitable Development
Desired Outcome: Sustainable (“triple bottom line”) development, sustainable business models, and public policies that are socially equitable and sensitive to environmental and public health concerns in the Metropolitan Detroit region.
The Foundation will consider support for projects that:
- Promote sustainable (“triple bottom line”) development – development that balances present and future sustainable business models, environmental and social outcomes;
- Encourage entrepreneurial and responsible business solutions to the region’s environmental issues;
- Build a healthy and equitable local food system based on sustainable solutions;
- Strengthen collaborative, community-based efforts working at the intersection of environmental justice, sustainable business and public health, that align research, policy and practice, and develop local environmental citizenship, advocacy and leadership; and
- Promote cooperation and collaboration between consumers, the business community and government agencies to develop policies and practices, encourage green chemistry and address significant environmental toxins and pollutants.
