Did you know we awarded $576,763 in grants in 2017, our most ever and a 33% increase over 2016? And that the current round of Grow grant proposals are asking for $222,861 collectively while we only have about $120,000 available to distribute? You can help meet the growing needs of our communities - join our Spring Appeal!
In 2017, we were overwhelmed by the depth and breadth of project ideas and solutions that came through our grants program and RootSkills Training Series! Groups are not waiting for top-down solutions but are seeking innovative and transformative change at the critical intersections of climate change, health, and equity. Become a part of the movement in 2018!
As the New England Grassroots Environment Fund celebrated its 21st birthday on April 1st we believe it is the perfect time focus on one of our core values - Environmental Justice (EJ). While we believe every month should represent EJ month, we’re celebrating the founding vision of the organization with a series of events this month to focus on how our communities and our neighbors can connect, share and act together within the context of building a movement toward environmental justice.
