Purpose

Environmental Stewardship Grants

The Environmental Stewardship Fund was established in 2003 when 54 founding donors contributed at least $1,000 each in response to a $50,000 matching grant offer from the Board of Directors. These grants support smaller projects that help people preserve, enjoy or understand nature better.

Range of Grantmaking: Up to $2,500

Deadlines: Apply at any time by calling the contact listed below.

What We Fund

Priorities:

  1. Furthering preservation or protection of nature;
  2. Enhancing enjoyment of nature;
  3. Improving public knowledge and awareness of the natural world.

What We Don't Fund

Environmental Stewardship grants typically don’t support the following:

  • General operating expenses not related to the proposed project.
  • Capital projects, except minor capital expenses directly related to the programs.
  • Projects so large that our grant would have little impact.
  • Medical research
  • Travel costs for projects that occur outside of the Fox Valley region.
  • Fund-raisers

To Apply

First, read the Community Foundation’s general grant policies to see if your project qualifies. Then discuss your environmental stewardship grant proposal with:
