The Joseph & Vera Long Foundation Grant
Deadlines: See Details
The Joseph & Vera Long Foundation seeks to enhance education in the communities of Northern California and Hawaii by supporting well-established organizations that help children and young adults prepare for their future.
For 2020, the Foundation will have the following grant programs for Education:
- Connecting Youth with Nature - Experiential learning about the natural world which fosters stewardship for the environment and promotes wellness, health, and community.
- Fostering Creativity Through the Arts - Growth, learning, and development through the visual, literary and performing arts which stimulate creative expression and imagination, promote independent thinking and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills for life.
For all Education grants, the Foundation values innovation, measurability, cost-effectiveness, broad impact, diverse funding/revenue streams and time-limited projects for which fundraising can be completed with our contribution. Special consideration will be given to projects which are difficult to fund through traditional channels.
The Joseph & Vera Long Foundation seeks to support organizations that provide meaningful, hands-on experiences for school-age children and young adults to learn to appreciate and connect with nature.
