Scherman Foundation announces Core Fund Environment Program (New York)

The Scherman Foundation is accepting applications for its Core Fund Environment Program to support a variety of organizations seeking to protect the natural and human environment and to create a sustainable future.

Donor Name: The Scherman Foundation

State: New York

City: New York City

Type of Grant: Grant

Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): Ongoing

Grant Size: $50,000

Grant Duration: 2 years


Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, energy and climate, environmental justice, clean drinking water, and urban sustainability (targeted primarily in the New York City region). The Foundation pays particular attention to New York City, working to improve its public transportation infrastructure, protect its drinking water supply, and preserve and expand its parks and open green spaces, primarily in low-income neighborhoods.

The Foundation maintains its commitment to general operating support, especially to smaller neighborhood groups for whom the capacity to respond quickly and imaginatively to new opportunities and challenges is critical. For larger and policy-focused groups, and in the case of collaborative campaigns, project-specific support may be appropriate.
