Innovation Grants

Applications for the 2014 Toyota TogetherGreen Innovation Grants are now closed, please check back in summer 2015 for more information. 

The Toyota TogetherGreen Innovation Grants Program supports creative and ambitious projects that engage diverse communities and find innovative solutions to environmental challenges.

All information related to this year's Innovation Grants program can be found in the application guidelines section of this website.

Each year, the Toyota TogetherGreen Innovation Grants fund projects that:

  • Conserve or restore habitat and protect species, improve water quality or quantity, and reduce the threat of climate change by reducing energy use and improving efficiency;
  • Engage new and diverse audiences in community conservation; and
  • Use innovative approaches to forge partnerships and reach audiences that are brand new to your organization.

Innovation Grants fund innovative community-based conservation projects. We seek applications from organizations within the Audubon network that are working with partners in their communities, and that have the passion, commitment, and vision to move people to take action and achieve lasting conservation results. If you are interested in applying but your organization is not part of the Audubon network, we encourage you to try to find an Audubon group you can partner with near you. If there are no Audubon groups in your area, your organization may apply with partners of its own.

In 2014, we will award approximately 20 grants, ranging from $5,000 to $80,000, with an average grant size of $28,000. Note that larger requests will face considerably more competition than requests of $25,000 or less.

In addition, we will be offering two to three planning grants of $5,000 or less. See Planning Grants for details.
