First Peoples Worldwide - Keepers of the Earth Fund _ Deadline: Open

Our goal through the Keepers of the Earth Fund is to support Indigenous-led projects and to increase access to funding for Indigenous communities and support Indigenous-led projects that create greater Indigenous control of Indigenous assets.

We support strategies that address Indigenous development (e.g., land use and conservation, traditional decision-making, climate change, food security, etc.).

All applicants must:
  • be an Indigenous-led grassroots/local organization or group;
  • have an organizational bank account or access to a fiscal sponsor; copies of fiscal sponsor’s terms and requirements will be requested.
  • insure project activities will be completed outside of the United States.

Grant amounts range between $250 and $20,000 USD. First time awards generally range between US $2,500 to $5,000. Project timeframes are between six and 12 months. It can take up to eight weeks to review and process your request. First Peoples Worldwide may contact you for additional information.
