The Wallace Global Fund’s (WGF) mission is to promote an informed and engaged citizenry, to fight injustice, and to protect the diversity of nature and the natural systems upon which all life depends. Objectives include the
- Effective protection of the environment and natural resources and their capacity to provide for human needs and
- Progressive public policies that serve the common good, protect civil liberties, and guard against corporate abuses.
The Fund seeks to further its mission generally through fundamental public policy and systemic change. It supports activities at the global and national level, and will consider significant local or regional initiatives offering the potential to leverage broader national or global impact. It will consider proposals for either core support or project-specific support. Grant proposals are processed and reviewed on a continual basis. The average grant size is $50,000, with actual grant awards ranging from $2,000 to $400,000. The Fund makes both one-year and multi-year grants. The review process typically takes between one and three months. In addition to grantmaking, WGF staff often provide potential network contacts, advice, and other assistance to applicants.
