The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on Latin America, Spain, Portugal, and more recently, Antarctica. Founded in 1959 by Dr. Edward Larocque Tinker who had a lifelong interest in the Iberian tradition in the Old and New Worlds, the Foundation funds projects relating to those countries. Of particular interest is the interchange and exchange of information relating to Spain, Portugal, Ibero-America, and Antarctica. The Foundation defines Ibero-America as the Spanish- and Portugal-speaking countries of the Western Hemisphere. Projects should address environmental policy, economic policy, or governance issues; have a strong public policy component or offer innovative solutions to problems facing those regions; and incorporate new mechanisms for addressing these programmatic areas. Activities may include, but are not limited to, research projects and conferences related to the Foundationís areas of interest. The Foundation encourages collaboration between organizations in the United States and Iberia or Latin America and among institutions in those regions.
