About this grant

The Global Greengrants Fund, founded in 1993, is a global organization supporting grassroots-led efforts to protect the planet and the rights of people through a participatory grantmaking model. The Environmental Defenders Collaborative, operated by the Global Greengrants Fund and funded by a number of institutions, supports civil society and environmental and human rights advocates working at the community level. With prior Mott support, the collaborative leveraged Mott funding to increase by threefold the small grants provided to protect and support environmental defenders in South America. With renewed support, the grantee will continue implementation of its strategy to protect defenders in South America, with a focus on Brazil.
