Woodard & Curran Foundation Grants for Clean Water

Woodard & Curran Foundation’s 2017 giving strategy is focused on a resource basic to life and often taken for granted: clean water. Whether you live in an area where water supplies are plentiful or where water scarcity is a daily concern, issues surrounding water conservation, sanitation, and safe drinking water supplies are high on the list of environmental concerns. We are passionate about progress for a sustainable future and strive to partner with 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations taking action toward that progress. If your nonprofit shares that passion and your efforts have a particular focus on water, we are excited to offer you these opportunities for funding. Deadline: July 1, 2017.


1-year Grants (application deadline July 1, 2017)

Up to three smaller grants totaling $9,000 with no one grant exceeding $5,000 are available in this category, which is dedicated to addressing the problem of water scarcity through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) initiatives. Projects at levels of grant requests from $1,000 to $5,000 will be accepted. This opportunity is limited to 501(c)(3) nonprofits that meet our general eligibility requirements and are located in states where Woodard & Curran Inc. either has an office or operates a treatment facility: CA, CT, FL, GA, IL, MA, ME, MI, MO, MT, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, TN, UT, VT, or WY.



3-year Impact Grant (Letter of Interest by July 1, 2017)

This grant will total $100,000 over three consecutive years beginning in November 2017 ($33,000 in 2017, $33,000 in 2018, and $34,000 in 2019). Applicants would be pursuing funding for an innovative project applying or advancing technology to address water (e.g. water, wastewater, stormwater, etc.) issues relating to climate change. This opportunity is open to all U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits that meet our general eligibility requirements.


If you meet our eligibility requirements, you are encouraged to apply for the Track 1 (1-Year) Grant or the Track 2 (3-Year) Impact Grant. Please be sure to review our FAQs before submitting an application. They contain important information regarding eligibility, the application process, and the timing of the grant award.  Please note that this information is not available on the grant application you submit. For this reason, we have provided a downloadable PDF version of the applications that you can use to prepare which includes the instructions found on this page as well as the FAQ section. Questions that are not addressed by the FAQs can be directed to grants@woodardcurranfoundation.org.
