The Plastic Solutions Fund makes direct grants, supports parallel grant making, provides in-kind services and shares strategic guidance – all to support our grantees. We are inspired by projects that kick start change though the whole plastic system. We prefer projects that engage multiple organizations, building the strength of the movement overall as well as delivering tangible outcomes. We work in collaboration with our grantees, seeking to create partnerships early in project inception and development.
Plastic Solutions Fund Partners commit $500,000 annually for three years; Members contribute a minimum of $100,000 in any one year. Partners serve on the Board of Directors and maintain primary responsibility for guiding projects through the design and approval process. Members participate in all Board discussions and meetings. As appropriate, the Plastic Solutions Fund also provides guidance to other philanthropies interested in plastic pollution issues.
The Plastic Solutions Fund Partners and Members currently have a combined three year commitment of $12 million.
