Proposals for Environmental, Peace Projects
The New Earth Foundation welcomes proposals for innovative projects with the potential to enhance life on the planet, further peace, and brighten prospects for the future. The foundation will award grants in support of pioneering yet practical projects in many fields of endeavor, including but not limited to environmental initiatives aimed at eliminating pollution and saving 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. The foundation is particularly interested in projects that have potential to be replicated by others.
With the idea that a grant will be of more benefit to smaller organizations, the foundation gives priority to newer 501(c)(3)s.
To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service. Organizations without tax exempt status may apply in partnership with an umbrella organization or fiscal sponsor, though the application must be accompanied by a letter of agreement detailing the project and the nature of the sponsoring organization’s support or involvement.
Letters of inquiry are due February 1, 2021. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by May 1, 2021.
See the New Earth Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and previously supported projects.
Submissions to this sponsor/donor are managed by the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations. Please contact your unit-assigned ASUF Director of Development or Research Advancement Specialist at your earliest convenience to ensure ASU's strategic coordination and management of funding applications.
