GrassRoots Conservation is a New Jersey based nonprofit dedicated to making real change in the conservation movement through community action. Large nonprofits raise awareness about the climate crisis but often fail to inspire or empower action. That is where we come in! All year round we accept applications and provide grants along with advice for small groups or individuals pursuing conservation projects in their communities. Our goal is to grow the conservation movement from the grassroots up!
"We all have the power to make important change in our communities. If you have the passion, we will help get you there!"
We will provide grants of up to $1000 to applicants to pay for project expenses.
We provide project planning and strategy advice for applicants through communications and feedback.
Together we can make real change in communities across the U.S. What are you waiting for?
