The Strong Foundation for Environmental Values makes grants to efforts that instill an ecological ethic in the individual and in our communities, and, which encourage grassroots environmental action based on such an ethic.

We emphasize grants for environmental and conservation efforts, eco-spirituality, grassroots action, environmental education, capacity building, citizen participation, collaborative efforts, innovative programs, land acquisition, planning and training. Climate change programs at the community level are also eligible for grant consideration. Examples would be projects related to a changing climate, preparing for resilience, learning for adaptation, and promoting changes in lifestyle to help avoid or mitigate climate impacts.
