Benefits of The Doc Society Climate Story Fund

The Climate Story Fund, organized by The Doc Society, considers proposals from completed creative nonfiction and fiction projects that are looking to pilot an impact campaign in 2022 – to engage audiences who are not typically included in the climate conversation.

Awards for this round of funding range between $20,000 and $100,000.

All projects must be climate-related, with the goal of launching an impact campaign. The Doc Society does not require you to be an expert on impact, but you must be receptive to the concept. They require all grantees to attend an Impact Lab to connect with impact producers and climate experts, to help develop impact distribution strategies, and to ensure they are building on existing expertise and advocacy efforts to engage their intended audiences as part of our grant-making for this fund.

Eligibility Criteria

The selection process will be guided by the Fund’s principles, including prioritizing projects that embody inclusion and diversity across team and subject matter, and exercising responsible practices when engaging story participants and communities. 

Each grantee will be invited to participate in an impact lab where storytellers will collaborate closely with practitioners, ranging from climate scientists to impact producers to movement builders, to ensure they are building upon existing expertise and advocacy efforts to engage their intended audiences.
