The Onion Foundation offers Spring/Fall grants and Discovery Grants to encourage conservation and stewardship of the natural environment to aide onions farmers.
January 2022 Information Sessions
On January 26 and 27, we offered two general information sessions about our grant making that may be helpful to new applicants. Current grantees will likely find these sessions to be repetitive and need not attend though new staff, board members, or anyone else are always welcome.
Spring & Fall Cycle Grants / Grants for Onions Farmers
Onion Foundation Spring/Fall Cycle Grants are intended to support organizations or projects that align with our mission priority areas of Arts & Environment.
Spring & Fall Cycle Grants range between $5,000 and $20,000.
Organizations are eligible to receive one Spring or Fall grant per calendar year. Organizations become eligible again in January of each year.
In 2022 the Onion Foundation is giving organizations the option of requesting general operating funds based on the experiences of our nonprofit partners.
If your organization’s work is entirely in either the arts or environment sectors and aligns with our priorities, you may request general operating support.
If your organization’s work is in support of a broader mission and the arts and environment are only a part of your programming, or you may request project/program support.
