The New England Biolabs Foundation
The Foundation supports community-based conservation of landscapes and seascapes and the bio-cultural diversity found in these places. Established in 1982 by the Company founder, the Foundation supports grassroots organizations and NGOs in selected countries of Central America, South America, and West Africa, as well as the North Shore of Massachusetts. Occasionally, the Foundation will make grants to organizations in Tanzania and Papua New Guinea. Funding priorities include conservation of biological diversity, (both terrestrial and marine); sustaining cultural diversity (linguistic diversity as well as traditional knowledge systems and practices), and maintaining ecosystem services (water, soil, and carbon sequestration). In addition, the Foundation also prioritizes supporting food security and economic vitality of local communities and sustaining healthy reefs and support of sustainable fisheries in the marine environment. Grants are awarded in the following countries: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Ghana, and Cameroon. In addition, the Foundation will consider invited proposals from several countries where they have been working over the past decade including Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. In Massachusetts, the Foundation also supports projects in the areas of artistic expression. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
