Grant Program Description and Goals

The Cedar Tree Foundation also supports work on a broad range of environmental issues within the United States.  In the past, this work has included environmental health, sustainable agriculture, environmental education, conservation, and environmental justice organizations working on innovative, practical solutions to environmental challenges.  We continue to be interested in those topics, and we have also identified current priority areas of interest, which will shift over time.   All of Cedar Tree’s grants are focused on supporting organizations and work that leads to significant and real positive changes in the world.

At this time, the Foundation is especially interested in work related to the current priority interests listed in the How to Apply section below.
