The Compton Foundation's Environment and Sustainability grant making seeks a balanced and healthy relationship between humans, other life, and the planet. The Foundation believes it is possible to pursue a holistic and sustainable vision that blends concern for environmental conservation and economic viability, links urban and rural priorities, and views humans as one part of the natural world. The Foundation has chosen three focus areas in which to make a meaningful contribution to realizing this vision in the United States: 1) to advance ecologically healthy, economically sustainable, and socially just visions for the management and use of fresh water in the western US; 2) to reduce the US contribution to global climate change; and 3) to promote community-based strategies to support healthy ecosystems and thriving rural communities.

The Foundation prioritizes projects in the following order:

  1. Regional or statewide projects in the three Pacific Coast states: California, Oregon, Washington
  2. Regional or statewide projects in the eleven Western states: California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Wyoming
  3. Projects of national significance in the United States

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, January 11, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should summarize the project's geographic focus, goals, and environmental benefits.
