Wallace Global Fund
|Category: Democracy & Government
The Fund, which grew out of the Wallace Genetic Foundation founded in 1965 by Henry A. Wallace, seeks to promote an informed and engaged citizenry, fight injustice, and protect the diversity of nature and the natural systems upon which all life depends. It also seeks to further its mission through fundamental public policy and systemic change. The Fund supports activities at the global and national level and will consider significant local or regional initiatives offering the potential to leverage broader national or global impact. It will consider proposals for either core or project-specific support. Priority is given to programs that address environmental resource depletion and system collapse; corporate abuses and the concentration of corporate power; planetary carrying capacity; sustainable human population; women’s human rights; civic engagement; civil liberties; equal justice; independent media; and media policy. Grants are reviewed on a quarterly basis in March, June, September, and December. Applicants are asked to submit a letter of inquiry of no more than two pages. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
