Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit organization to help reduce global warming. Funding may be used for programs that will reduce global warming through climate communication, education, direct carbon avoidance, or industry engagement. Funding is intended to measurably reduce existing or avoid future emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria:

The NextGen Committee will primarily judge proposals on the potential to help reverse global warming. The Committee will also give strong consideration to meaningful social and environmental benefits associated with the carbon reduction potential of the project. Though organizations must  be based in the United States to be considered for the grant, the projects undertaken by those organizations can take place anywhere in the world. Examples of projects could include:

  1.  Reduction of C02e
    Strong proposals of this kind will demonstrate high-quality estimations of direct carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) reductions. The Environmental Protection Agency has a greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator that may be useful in calculating these estimates. An organization may prefer to utilize a different CO2e calculator or estimate carbon savings in other ways. So long as an organization’s methodology for such estimations is clearly stated, applicants may utilize any tools they wish.
  2. Climate Communication
    Strong proposals of this kind will engage audiences to respond to climate change in their own distinct ways or will be dedicated to education or research toward solving large-scale barriers to climate action. The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication could be a helpful resource for projects like this.
  3. Corporate engagement to advance climate goals
    Strong proposals of this kind will focus on corporate engagement and will seek to influence businesses in their key climate change related practices in order to mitigate negative environmental impacts.
  4. Other
    Other compelling proposals that help to reverse global warming in ways not mentioned above will also be considered.
