Keepers of the Earth Fund
Cultural Survival is pleased to announce our next call for project proposals for our Keepers of the Earth Fund. The Keepers of the Earth Fund awards grants of $5,000 USD, on average, to directly support Indigenous communities, organizations, and traditional governments in their self-determined development projects based on their Indigenous values. We seek to financially support collective projects, working in collaboration for the benefit of the community.
Applicants are encouraged to propose projects on any topic that is of importance to their community. Of special interest for the 2021 call for proposals, projects focused on the following topics and their intersections may include: Protection of Mother Earth and strengthening biodiversity; mitigation of climate change; leadership of Indigenous women and youth; food systems; long-term projects in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in all its aspects: community health, food and economic sovereignty, etc.
To apply you must fill out a questionnaire and at the end, attach your project concept in text, video, or audio format. We accept project concepts in Spanish, English, Portuguese, Ayuujk, Maya K’iche, Kaqchikel and Poqomam, Sunuwar, Afrikaans, Nepali, French, or Russian. From the project concepts received, the strongest candidates will be invited to submit a full project proposal for evaluation and final selection. Visit our website for more information!
Project concepts will be accepted until March 2, 2021.
