Grants to Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia nonprofits, municipalities, public agencies, and tribes to protect the environment in the Emerald Corridor by advocating for responsible human activities and sustainable communities. A letter of inquiry needs to be submitted in advance of the application.

The funding region is defined as the Emerald Corridor, consisting of the urban area west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. Within that geographic range, a priority will be placed on projects and initiatives that promote sustainability within the three major metropolitan regions anchored by the cities of Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Foundation looks for high risk, high potential payoff opportunities to exert unusual leverage. It has a special interest in demonstrating innovative approaches that promise to solve multiple problems simultaneously.

Term of Contract:

The Bullitt Foundation requires each grantee to submit a final report at the completion of its 12-month grant year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible, US organizations must have a current nonprofit tax status under the Internal Revenue Act. Applicants must have a 501(c)(3) determination letter, or identify themselves as a validly organized and operating municipal corporation, public agency, or Native American tribe.

Canadian applicants must have a Canadian Certificate of Incorporation and charity registration documents to be eligible.

Charitable grantees sometimes contract to provide fiscal sponsorship for projects of other groups. However, such relationships are strictly between the grantee and the other groups. The charitable grantee is responsible for administering the grant, for ensuring that no funds are misspent, and for achieving the objectives described in the proposal. Organizations that have applied for charitable tax status are not eligible to apply for a grant from The Bullitt Foundation until their charitable status has been acknowledged in writing by the federal government.

The Bullitt Foundation does not make grants to individuals.
