The Kinsman Foundation
The Foundation seeks to encourage the enjoyment of life through traditional Oregonian and American values such as challenging abusive power; respect for personal creativity, skill, effort and accomplishment; freethinking; dedication to individual justice, and appreciation of the natural world. Grants are awarded in two categories: historic preservation and native wildlife rehabilitation and appreciation. Historic preservation grants are awarded for architectural preservation – the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, and reconstruction of historic buildings, structures, and related sites. Most funded projects are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, either individually or as a contributing resource in an historic district. Grants for native wildlife rehabilitation and appreciation are almost exclusively limited to nonprofits managed by state- and federally-licensed wildlife rehabilitators. These programs offer urgent care of injured and orphaned wildlife native to Oregon and Washington. The Foundation also administers the Betty Kinsman Fund for Arts, Culture and Humanities, which has an application deadline of February 15. The Fund makes grants supporting literary, theater, and photographic arts. Additional information can be found on the Web site. Small grant requests of up to $10,000 are accepted throughout the year. Conventional grant requests of over $10,000 must be submitted by August 1. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
