Honor the Earth was established in 1993 to address two of the primary needs of the Native environmental movement: the need to break the geographic and political isolation of Native communities, and the need to increase financial resources for organizing and change. Over our twenty-five years of operations, we have re-granted two million dollars to just over 200 Native American communities. We are proud to support the work of Native-led organizations throughout North America.

Organizations that serve Native communities receive only .07% of all grant funding available in the United States. And only a fraction of that goes to organizations that are lead by Native people, for their own communities. 

For information on how to apply for a grant please click here. While we generally have two grant cycles per year, we also have some discretionary funds for projects that have a critical and timely need. Please contact us at for more information.

Please look below for information on our grantees. The work we've been honored to fund is the work that is critical in the movement toward a better future for Native peoples.
