Genographic Legacy Fund
The Fund aims to empower indigenous and traditional peoples on a local level while helping to raise awareness on a global level of the challenges and pressures facing these communities. Areas of interest include education, cultural conservation, and linguistic preservation and revitalization efforts. Grants are open to individuals, groups, and organizations. Applicants must provide a record of current or prior work in support of indigenous education programs and/or cultural or linguistic conservation efforts. The majority of the people forming the group responsible for providing project governance must be members of the indigenous community in which the project will be implemented. Projects are divided into two categories: micro, smaller discrete projects that typically require lower amounts of funding and macro, larger and more complex projects undertaking in conjunctions with other entities such as NGOs, local education institutions, and government agencies. The maximum micro grants are $25,000; the maximum macro grants are $100,000. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
