Through the Environment Program, the foundation typically awards grants via invited proposals and, occasionally, open funding competitions. A variety of foundation-supported funding opportunities are also available through regranting programs administered by partner organizations. The foundation’s land capital funds are typically distributed through regranting competitions administered by regional conservation organizations.
Unsolicited proposals about future support for projects that fall within the Environment Program's three primary grantmaking strategies can be submitted through a letter of inquiry. Please review our areas of focus to determine whether your proposal fits our objectives by visiting the program’s What We Support page.
