Temper of the Times Foundation: Grants for Environmental Advertising
Deadline: December 15, 2023
Established in 1997, the Temper of The Times Foundation aims to promote the use of standard marketing concepts for increasing awareness about wildland conservation and restoration initiatives. Recognizing that organizations working to protect the environment, in general, have limited access to paid media, the foundation provides funds to underwrite advertising designed to promote the conservation and restoration of native wildlife, plants, and ecosystems in the United States. The foundation also supports earned media campaigns and other efforts to communicate about conservation and restoration initiatives and actions.
The foundation will award grants of between $5,000 and $15,000 for projects that will lead to measurable outcomes for wildland ecosystem conservation and restoration in the United States. Grants may be used to fund the production of print, radio, or television ads, to pay for advertising space or airtime, or to produce or distribute pamphlets, books, videos, or press packets. As grants are for wildland ecosystem advertising campaigns, not for general organizational support, they may not be used to cover costs associated with the production of organization newsletters, membership campaigns, or staff salaries. In addition, the foundation cannot fund lobbying efforts or candidates for political office.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization defined as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying for this opportunity.
