Merck Family Fund

Deadline: July 17, 2017

Website: http://www.merckff.org/


One of the Merck Family Fund’s goals is to restore and protect the natural environment and ensure a healthy planet for generations to come. The Fund provides grants to nonprofit organizations that address one of the following four program areas: The Reducing CO2 Emissions Through Energy Efficiency and Carbon Pricing program supports the development of political and economic drivers at the federal and state level in the Northeast and Southeast to establish or expand carbon pricing mechanisms. The Conserving Ecologically Valuable Land program provides grants for land conservation efforts in the Southeast. The Urban Farming and Youth Leadership program supports initiatives in low-income urban areas in the Northeast that help young people to create urban farms and local markets. The Making Paper Production Sustainable program seeks to increase the rates of recycled paper in large paper sectors, reduce sourcing from endangered forests, and maximize clean production nationwide. The final deadline for letters of inquiry this year is July 17, 2017; invited full proposals are due July 31, 2017. Visit the Fund’s website to learn more about the program areas.

American Honda Foundation

Deadline: August 1, 2017

Website:  http://www.honda.com/community/applying-for-a-grant


The American Honda Foundation engages in grant making that reflects the basic tenets, beliefs and philosophies of Honda companies, which are characterized by the following qualities: imaginative, creative, youthful, forward-thinking, scientific, humanistic and innovative. We support youth education with a specific focus on the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects in addition to the environment. When considering the American Honda Foundation as a potential funding source, please note the following:

Eligible Organizations:  Nonprofit charitable organizations classified as a 501(c) (3) public charity by the Internal Revenue Service, or a public school district, private/public elementary and secondary schools as listed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) are eligible for funding.

To be considered for funding organizations MUST have two years of audited financial statements examined by an independent CPA for the purpose of expressing an opinion if gross revenue is $500,000 or more. If gross revenue is less than $500,000, and the organization does not have audited financial statements, it may submit two years of financial statements accompanied by an independent CPA's review report instead.

Funding Priority: Youth education, specifically in the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, the environment, job training and literacy.

Other Important Information:  Organizations may only submit one request in a 12-month period. This includes colleges and universities with several departments/outreach programs.

  • The grant range is from $20,000 to $75,000 over a one-year period.
  • Proposals must be submitted online. No paper or faxed applications will be accepted
To determine if your program/project meets the qualifications for consideration, take the Eligibility Quiz and begin the online application process.

Walmart Foundation

Deadline:  August 11, 2017



The Walmart Foundation will consider applications from organizations providing Hunger Relief programming during all cycles, and will only accept applications from organizations requesting funding for Hunger Relief programming during cycles 1 and 2. If your program falls outside of that area of focus, you may submit an application during cycle 3 under the area described below as Community Engagement.

It is important to remember that the majority of funds are allotted during cycles 1 and 2, so for organizations with Hunger Relief programming, it is best to apply in those cycles.

  • Hunger Relief Giving - examples include food pantries, backpack programs, and SNAP outreach
  • Community Engagement Giving - Organizations seeking funding for programs outside of Hunger Relief, and whose programs focus on the unmet needs of underserved low-income populations, can apply in cycle 3 only
Community Engagement - examples include career opportunity, disaster preparedness, education programs, healthcare access, shelters, and other human service programs.
  •  Career Opportunity examples include job training programs and placement programs. Special interest is given to programs focused on women and veteran programs.
  •  Disaster Preparedness examples include preparedness equipment (e.g. Jaws of Life, shelter kits, etc.) and disaster preparedness awareness program
Applications must be entirely complete and submitted online to be considered. 
  • Submitting an online application does not guarantee funding.
  • The Walmart Foundation reserves the right to adjust guidelines, submission deadlines and notification dates without prior notice.
