This fall, SeedMoney will be awarding 101 garden grants ranging in size from $200-$600 to US-based and global food garden projects. We will be doing this through our 5th Annual Giving Gardens Challenge, a 4-week online giving campaign running from November 15th to December 15th.
We offer two types of grants: challenge grants (which involve crowdfunding) and merit grants (which don’t). Challenge Grants ($400) are awarded to the 50 projects that raise $600 or more the fastest using our crowdfunding tools. Merit grants ($200) don’t have any crowdfunding strings attached and can be applied for through the same online application. We will also award an additional $600 bonus grant to the project that raises the most.
