Initial Mini-Grant applications are closed. Please keep us in mind for the future.

DONATE to support future mini-grants.

Sustainable Israeli-Palestinian Projects (SIPP) is excited to announce our new Mini-Grants program. We are open to receiving grant applications at this time.

SIPP Mini-Grants will be awarded in amounts up to a maximum of $3,000. Requests for lower amounts are encouraged. The Mini-Grants will be for work performed during the time period January 1, 2023 through June 30, 2023. For projects whose time frame needs to be different (but completed in 2023) please ask SIPP for approval of an exception.

SIPP’s mission is to support projects that engage Israeli and Palestinian communities working to further common environmental and other interests, and to build meaningful connections between people in the United States and Israeli and Palestinian communities involved in these efforts.

SIPP is seeking grant applications from organizations doing projects that align with our mission. Priority will be given to applications that include matching financial or nonfinancial/in-kind contributions.

Subject areas for the Mini-Grants include but are not limited to:
  • Environmental Protection. These grants will be awarded by SIPP through “Environmentally Sustainable Projects, an Initiative of SIPP”.
    • Air, water, and soil pollution
    • Environmental Education
    • Improving outcomes for agriculture and food sources in a time of changing climate
    • o Responsible waste management such as diversion of organic material and recyclables from disposal to beneficial use, waste diversion infrastructure, and greenhouse gas reduction
    • Ecologic diversity
  • Civil society
    • Cross-cultural relations & programming
    • Nonviolent Communication (or similar) programs
