Is an invitation required to apply for a Patagonia grant?
Patagonia’s grants program is currently operating on an invitation-only basis. Invitations are determined by Patagonia’s grants team and will not be administered upon request.

Our grants team works to identify organizations doing work that best aligns with our grant-making strategies and operates in accordance with our funding guidelines.
Does Patagonia require progress reports or project updates? When are progress reports due?
If you receive a grant from Patagonia, you may be required to submit a nine-month progress report. Please reference the award letter we email to you upon grant payment to understand your reporting requirements. If required, consistent with your award letter, you should receive a report form approximately eight months after you receive your check. At that time, you should receive an automated email with instructions and a link to answer a few questions about how your work is proceeding. Please complete this progress report by the deadline listed in the email, which will be approximately nine months after you receive your grant check.

If you have not received an automated email about progress reports within eight to 10 months after receiving grant funds, please reach out to our CyberGrants support team at cgsupport@cybergrants.com.
Our organization or fiscal sponsor has moved since we applied for our grant. How do we update our mailing address so we don’t miss any important communications about our grant?
If awarded, our payments are distributed via mail, so it is critical that your mailing address is correct in your CyberGrants profile. If you or your fiscal sponsor have moved, please email your Patagonia grants team contact to update the necessary information.
The person who submitted our grant proposal is no longer the appropriate contact person. How do we change our contact information so we don’t miss any important communications regarding our grant?
The email address entered under the proposal’s primary contact when your organization applied is the email address that will receive all grants communications related to that proposal, including funding decisions, requests for a revised proposal and progress reports.

If your primary contact is no longer the appropriate person for grants communications, please reach out to our CyberGrants support team at cgsupport@cybergrants.com and to your Patagonia grants team representative to revise the contact information for your organization and any affected proposals.
I got an email request for a check acknowledgement letter, but never received a check. How can we clarify the status of our grant payment?
Please respond directly to your grant acknowledgment letter notification via email so we can best answer your questions regarding payment status.
My grant award letter indicated that I would receive an email prompt to submit a check acknowledgement letter, but I haven’t received one. When is the check acknowledgement letter due?
If you receive a Patagonia grant, you will be required to submit a letter acknowledging that you received your payment (to be used for our tax purposes). Around the same time that you receive your payment, the primary contact listed in your application should receive an automated email with instructions to upload a check acknowledgement letter, which will be due within one month of the date you receive the email.

If you don’t receive this automated email within two to three weeks after receiving your payment, please log in to your CyberGrants profile to confirm that the contact information you listed in your application is accurate and reflects the person from your organization who should be receiving communications regarding your grant. If the contact information is correct, but you still have not received the automated email, please reach out to CyberGrants support at cgsupport@cybergrants.com to upload the grant acknowledgement letter.

Please note that without Patagonia’s receipt of this letter, you will be ineligible for future grant payments.
