NextGen 2018 Grant - Call for Proposals


The Ray C. Anderson Foundation is a grantmaking Foundation committed to advancing the legacy of its namesake by supporting environmental sustainability initiatives. Ray’s five grandchildren, along with their spouses, comprise the NextGen Committee of the Foundation, which makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees for worthwhile grants and initiatives. In 2018, the NextGen Committee has decided to focus its philanthropic efforts on programs that help to reverse global warming.

Request for Proposals

The NextGen Committee seeks proposals for currently existing or new programs that would measurably reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, measured by metric tons (or “tonnes”) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), either by preventing the emission of those gases or by sequestering gases presently in the atmosphere. The Foundation intends to award one $90,000 grant to the organization with the best proposal, to fund work during the 2019 calendar year.

RFP Opens: April 11, 2018

RFP Closes: July 11, 2018
