rsz_ideas_wellIDEAS For Us is here to help you be the change you wish to see in the World. Do you have an idea for an environmental solution but need seed funding to get off the ground? We are here to help.

In Summer 2015, IDEAS worked diligently to launch the Solutions Fund, a micro-granting initiative that awards leaders with up to $1,000 for project funding to help develop and implement an innovative environmental solution around the World.

In launching our 3rd round of funding, IDEAS has developed new tools to assist in developing your project proposal. We now have a simple process to submit your idea on our website.

To sign-up and submit your proposal, visit and fill out the application form with your project idea, team information, and project impact details.

The deadline for this first round of grants will be June 1st, 2016. We expect to be able to release the funds by July 1st, so the projects can kick-off in early Fall 2016.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts, questions, concerns, or need help, that’s what I’m here for! Good luck and we are very excited to put funding where it is deservingly needed.

IDEAS For Us is committed to serving the communities and ecosystems where our members live, work, and thrive. While we wish we could support all of the thousands of worthy submissions we receive each year, the volume of requests is far greater than our ability to accommodate each one. We appreciate your understanding should your request be one that we are unable to support.
