The Blue Moon Fund (which usually uses all lower-case letters in its title) makes grants to nonprofit organizations that have developed innovative, holistic approaches to improving human quality of life in harmony with the natural world, including urban environments.
It supports a range of projects within the Chesapeake-Appalachia watershed and in Louisiana. From New Orleans to the Gulf Coast, the fund supports work to restore the natural balance of environment and development. Education efforts are a priority. The fund recently supported a school environmental education program in Virginia about upgrading the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
To apply, go online and fill out a brief eligibility quiz. If it is determined that your project meets our general requirements, you will immediately be given the opportunity to submit a letter of inquiry. Following review by staff, a full proposal may then be requested.
