We support grassroots organizations and other NGOs in selected countries in Central America, Andean South America, and West Africa. In addition, in support of our local roots, we also provide grants for community-based conservation and cultural projects in coastal communities on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

Our maximum international grant size is $10,000, with grants typically ranging from $3,000 to $8,000.

Local grants range from $2,500 to $5,000.
