Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources
Grants for animal protection, environmental justice, and human rights. Lush funds small grassroots organizations for projects in environmental justice, animal protection, and human rights.
Lush accepts applications for projects in all geographical locations, and irrespective of how organizations are registered. It prefers to support projects which aim to change opinion and behavior through raising awareness of issues, activism, and education and campaigning — particularly when and where this kind of work is not well funded by other sources.
Grants are a maximum of US$25 thousand per project.
APPLICATION: Applicants study the Charity Pot guidelines and send an email to request an application form. The email should briefly describe the applicant’s organization, and the project for which funding is being requested.
Lush will reply within a short time to notify the applicant if the application is short-listed or declined.
