WWEC Community Grants

Environment Committee Community Grants Available

Due Date: March 8, 2024

It’s that time of year once again when community groups are invited to submit applications for grants. Weavers Way’s Environment Committee endeavors to support efforts to green our community via planting and education. With climate change becoming more visible and threatening, we welcome all efforts to combat climate change. Nature needs all the help she can get, including more trees, more native plants to benefit insects and birds, and more opportunities to educate others about the environment.

Local community groups may apply for the grants, which range from $100 to $500. Preference will be given to groups and projects in underserved neighborhoods. Applicants must have a tax number to receive funds.

In the past, the Environment Committee has hosted Electronic Recycling events to raise funds for the grants. Since that is our main source of income, the committee is grateful to those in the community who have contributed through them. We also thank those who contributed on Giving Twosdays. Our next Electronic Recycling event will take place on Saturday, May 18.

We encourage electronic submissions to the committee at environment@weaversway.coop.  If you’re unable to email your application, print and mail it to Environment Committee, Weavers Way Co-op, 559 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119, or place it  in the Environment Committee’s mailbox at Weavers Way Mt. Airy on Carpenter Lane.

Applications must be received by Friday March 8, 2024. Groups will be informed if they have received a grant within a month of the deadline. Grantees are then obliged to submit a report with receipts describing how the money was spent by November 1, 2024.
