Overview:

Note: Most grants are pursuant to proposals solicited by MCFA. Ideal timing for proposals is during the first quarter of the calendar year.

Founded in 1992, the mission of the Mitsubishi Corporation Foundation for the Americas (MCFA) s to promote environmental causes throughout the Americas in the broadest sense, which encompasses both the physical and social environments in which we live.

We support a wide range of projects in the following four categories:

  • Biodiversity Conservation: We promote the conservation of biological diversity and natural resources by supporting research, the establishment of protected areas, and strategies for valuing the natural environment such as Payments for Ecosystem Services.
  • Sustainable Development: We support sustainable development by means of local livelihood development for communities in environmentally sensitive areas, support for small and medium size enterprises in developing countries, and by promoting sustainable business practices.
  • Environmental Justice: We promote environmental justice by supporting the rights of marginalized communities to live in a clean and safe environment and participate in decision-making that impacts their environment. This helps to ensure that the burdens of industrial development are not unfairly imposed on those communities that are the most vulnerable to negative environmental impacts.
  • Environmental Education: We support environmental education programs that raise public awareness about the environment, and foster greater appreciation for the value and scarcity of natural resources, and the importance of environmental stewardship.
