Rauschenberg Foundation Awards Climate Change Solutions Grants

Nine organizations have been identified to receive support through the Climate Change Solutions Fund. Grant amounts range from $50,000 to $100,000 over two years for projects taking place in four countries: Micronesia, Peru, the United States, and Zambia.

Representing a diverse collection of strategies to address global warming, from native seed collection and documenting the stories of Arizona farmers to developing a primer for artist-driven climate activism worldwide, each of the nine grantees will engage with local and regional communities in ways that leverage cultural traditions and creative practices.

“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes.”

“We gotta flip the script on what a gangsta is — if you ain’t a gardener, you ain’t gangsta.”
