Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for innovative projects to educate and inspire individuals, communities, and organizations to engage in environmental activism. Funding is intended for pilot, model, and demonstration projects that seek to change attitudes and behaviors about environmental issues.

The Foundation particularly encourages and nurtures environmental action through:

- Supporting the present generation of environmental activists, whether professionals or volunteers through education, training and other activities
- Educating and engaging the next generation of environmentalists with a special interest in supporting the training of those who are teaching that generation
- Strengthening the infrastructure of the environmental movement with a particular focus on efforts at the grassroots and statewide levels
- Activating new constituencies, particularly those focused on environmental equity issues

The Foundation annually alternates its new grantmaking between its Mental Health, AIDS, and Environmental program areas. In 2019, the Foundation will be making grants in the Environmental program area.
