LOI – Scherman Foundation’s Katharine S. and Axel G. Rosin Fund

December 18, 2017

The Scherman Foundation’s Katharine S. and Axel G. Rosin Fund is accepting letters of intent for Environment projects to be considered for its 2018 grant cycle.

They expect to make three 3-year, $375,000 grants ($125,000 per year). More information, including detailed guidelines, are online. Letters of intent are due by January 12, 2018 through their website. Final decisions will be made in June.

While the website provides more detailed program descriptions and an online application link, here is a synopsis: 

The Rosin Environment Program will fund a limited number of innovative, short-term and high-impact projects that address critical environmental issues within the Program’s scope of interest (Urban Sustainability, Green Economy/Green Jobs, and Sustainable Drinking Water). Target projects should demonstrate the potential to effect significant, transformative benefits both near-term and over time, within a project scope of one to three years and an overall budget in which the Fund’s grant plays a significant role. Proposals that reconceive environmental challenges as opportunities and present holistic, integrated solutions that address multiple problems will receive particular attention. Projects should offer measurable outcomes, preferably with the potential to multiply beneficial effects through scale and/or replication.
