Kalliopeia’s grants are dedicated to leaders and projects that model cultural and ecological renewal rooted in reverent connection to the Earth.
We accept proposals by invitation only, and we meet new grantee partners through our networks, field research, and gatherings. Please note our primary focus is our existing network of grantee partners. After reading this page, if you feel your work is strongly aligned with our mission, tell us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. We read and appreciate each introduction, and while we are not able to respond to every email, we will contact you if we are interested to learn more.
Who We Support
Kalliopeia prioritizes land-based projects that regenerate soil, soul, and community.
Our grants are of different sizes and scope, and can be general operating or project support, depending on the particular need. Grant decisions are rooted in trust and guided by our mission to cultivate the connections between ecology, culture, and spirituality.
Our focus is on organizations and projects that:
- are US-based, with an element of care for and connection to land;
- have leadership that is both visionary and grounded;
- foster leadership in others, especially among younger generations and across generations;
- are well managed, with clear results;
- use communications to connect and inspire beyond a single community.
Please note that we do not prioritize organizations or projects that a) focus singularly on ecological, spiritual, or cultural renewal without expression of their interconnection, or b) whose impact and story don’t translate beyond a niche audience: e.g., academia, specific religious communities.
