The Pallet Foundation supports projects that will contribute to the improvement of the wood packaging industry. Our goal is to invest in sound research relevant to the most pressing questions and compelling opportunities in one of these main focus areas:
Projects that relate to one of the focus areas are given first consideration. We also fund projects in other areas that are compelling and help to advance the sector. We accept applications throughout the year, from the U.S. and internationally. However, you must submit your proposal in English and use U.S. Dollars in your budget.
The applicant must be affiliated with a non-profit organization or government agency that is willing to serve as the administering organization if the grant is awarded. Examples include universities, school districts, research facilities, federal/state/local government agencies, as well as other non-profit organizations or trade associations. The Pallet Foundation does not award grants directly to individuals.
Within the online application, we will ask you a few basic questions. You will then be required to upload a. PDF or Word document that contains the following elements:
The Pallet Foundation uses a peer review process for all eligible submissions. The Pallet Foundation Trustees and internal staff review each project. We evaluate projects based on the connection to the goals included in the Pallet Foundation Strategic Plan the importance of the topic to its field, the quality of the research question(s), and the direction of inquiry.
The Foundation accepts proposals continually, and project proposals must be submitted at least 120 days prior to any meeting of the Trustees. For information on timing for next meeting contact the Project Contact.
