Deadline: Rolling Funding: $25,000 Kalliopeia Foundation’s mission is to contribute to the evolution of communities and cultures that honor the unity at the heart of life’s rich diversity. Rooted in this mission, our grantmaking goal is to strengthen a collective recognition of the oneness of humanity.
We work toward this goal through three strategic program areas:
Fostering a Global Consciousness of Oneness: Contribute to a growing awareness of what unifies rather than divides people, and evolve our understanding of what it means to live in harmony with the whole of life.
Indigenous Cultures: Empower, encourage, and protect the flourishing of Indigenous Peoples, cultures, and languages that carry forward ancient traditions of kinship with all of life.
Nurturing the Inner Life: Support cultural transition to an increasingly interconnected world through transformative and contemplative work that reconnects humanity to the essential unity at its core.
National Geographic Society Offers Environmental Research Grants
Deadline: Rolling Funding: $20,000 Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration offers grants for conservation and education programs promoting sustainable use and preservation of the Earth. The funding efforts support cutting-edge programs that might be overlooked by other organizations. Applicants are expected to have Ph.D.'s or other advanced degrees. Funding is not restricted to U.S. citizens. Grants of up to $20,000 are available. Each year, about 250 grants are awarded. National Geographic Society grants may not be used for indirect costs, overhead and other expenses not directly related to the project. Fringe benefits are also excluded, as are salaries. Further, funds may not be used for travel to scientific/professional meetings or conferences, legal actions, land acquisition, endowments, construction of permanent field stations, or publication of research results. The committee strongly encourages applicants to seek additional, concurrent funding from other funding agencies. Committee grants tend to act as seed money and are given for one year.
Deadline: Rolling Funding: $100,000 The Foundation's focus areas and priorities include: Health—Food security; improved and optimum nutrition; energy balance Environment—Water security; sustainable agriculture; adaptive approaches to climate change Education—Access to education, dropout prevention and skills training for the underserved; Women's empowerment
Deadline: Rolling Funding: $25,000-$50,000 The Hewlett Foundation makes grants in five core program areas: education, environment, global development and population, performing arts, and philanthropy.
