Grant Opportunity through Rooted in Justice

Hi all,

Please share this grant opportunity, Rooted in Justice for $20,000-$25,000 per year for two years. I am not involved with this organization, contact: with questions.

The Cedar Tree Foundation is excited to announce a new round of grantmaking for "Rooted in Justice" a funding program designed to help amplify youth voices and actions in the environmental and food justice movements. We support community-based organizations and groups that specifically manage youth-led urban greening programs.  

Rooted in Justice recognizes the importance and undeniable right of every young person to have the ability to develop their own relationship with the environment, be it through growing food, spending time with nature, creating community green spaces, or becoming environmental stewards. Rooted in Justice also honors the power and possibilities that arise when young people collectively work to be change-makers in their communities.  

Rooted in Justice supports organizations, groups, collectives, and programs that work with young people between the ages of 12 to 20 in youth-led programming for communities or cultures which have historically or currently experience:

  • A lack of access to land or nature;

  • Agricultural oppression and/or neglect;

  • Food apartheid; and/or

  • Other forms of injustice based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics and disability.

Started in 2021, Rooted in Justice awards annual grants to a small cohort of organizations recommended to the Cedar Tree Board through an open RFP. Proposals are reviewed and selected by a panel with a majority of BIPOC leaders through a participatory grantmaking process.
