HewlettGrants to strengthen global climate policy and clean transportation

Principal Office: USA

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation makes grants to solve social and environmental problems in the San Francisco Bay region of California, western North America, and internationally. It is among the largest foundations in the USA.

The Foundation’s program of particular relevance in the Terra Viva Grants Directory is “Environment.”

Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Energy and Climate. Among multiple thematic areas in the Foundation’s grant making for Environment, the sub-program Energy and Climate has a strong international dimension.

This sub-program makes grants to strengthen global climate policy, with grant making worldwide. The Foundation also funds improvements in transportation to reduce air pollution (focusing on China, Mexico, Brazil, and USA).

About the sub-program for energy and climate

 

Grants are to nonprofit charitable organizations in the USA, and to nonprofit organizations outside the USA that have equivalent charitable status.

Most grants are in the range of US$30 thousand to US$500 thousand, although several grants are larger.

APPLICATION: Hewlett requests potential applicants to carefully study the information regarding its programs and priority areas.

Most of Hewlett’s grants are by invitation. However, the Foundation accepts letters of inquiry (LOIs) in certain programs — including Energy and Climate. LOIs can be submitted at any time.

If Hewlett is interested in the LOI, it will invite the applicant to submit a full proposal.
