The Environmental Solutions Program Area seeks to support organizations that are helping to change the way we think and act when it comes to some of the most important environmental issues of our time.

Grants in this Area aim to educate audiences about urgent environmental problems, motivate them to take action, and guide them to effective solutions. Our grantees specialize in strategic communication, organizational transformation, or training, and the projects they carry out are informed by cutting-edge work in the natural and social sciences.

The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations do not fund projects that focus primarily on environmental research, technical innovation, or policy. However, we recognize the importance of such work, and we aim for our grants to complement advances in these and other important fields.

AVDF is not currently accepting unsolicited requests to submit proposals, letters of inquiry, or concept papers in this Program Area.
