About the LSMF

The Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) joined together to launch a Local Sustainability Matching Fund. Now a project of the Funders’ Network, the fund is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, JPB Foundation, Kendeda Fund, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, New York Community Trust, Summit Foundation, and Surdna Foundation. The fund provides matching investments from national foundations on a competitive basis to build partnerships between sustainability directors and local place-based foundations to advance discrete sustainability initiatives that demonstrate broad-based community support and engagement.

Please check out the Idea Bank where you can read summaries of all the project ideas that were submitted to the Fund. We hope to attract additional interest in urban sustainability projects beyond those that we were able to fund. Click the link below!
