PCEF Mini Grants

A quarterly grant opportunity offering up to $5,000 for activities that align with PCEF goals of advancing racial and social justice while addressing climate change. Mini grants can fund a wide range of activities, including grant writing support, small projects, events, and training. 

The mini grant program is currently on hold. We are excited to be improving the program with the development of the Climate Investment Plan. Check back in soon to see what's new!

We plan to reopen the program in January 2024. Anticipated upcoming application deadlines are:

  • April 1, 2024
  • July 1, 2024
  • October 1, 2024

Who is eligible for PCEF funding?

Qualified nonprofit organizations who meet all of the following requirements are eligible to apply for any PCEF grant opportunity:

  2. Registered and certified with the Oregon Secretary of State as a nonprofit organization.
  3. NOT on the Oregon Department of Justice list of Disqualified Charities.

Newly formed or emerging groups who do not meet the 501(c) or 521(a) designation requirement, or eligible nonprofits who may benefit from additional administrative capacity, may apply for a PCEF grant with a fiscal sponsor. A fiscal sponsor is an eligible nonprofit organization that provides organizational infrastructure and administrative support for managing a grant.
