Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for a wide variety of environmental and community programs and projects. Applicants must submit a letter of inquiry prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support projects in many fields of endeavor, including but not limited to, environmental initiatives that are working to help eliminate pollution and to save the planet’s ecosystems, community efforts that create models of social sustainability, educational innovations that prepare youth to become the socially responsible leaders of the future, and strategies that offer economic improvement and opportunities.

Smaller, newer nonprofits are the focus of grants given, so that the Foundation’s gift can make a more significant contribution to the work of the recipient organization.

NEF particularly appreciates projects that are replicable so that excellent ideas and work can multiply and benefit many.

NEF may consider community housing, after school programs, children, youth, summer camps or garden programs that are significantly innovative, transformative and effective.
