The Weeden Foundation
The Foundationís primary mission has been to protect biodiversity. It also focuses its grantmaking on population growth, particularly in the United States, and over-consumption. Grants are awarded in the following funding areas: domestic biodiversity, international biodiversity, land acquisition, population, and consumption. Current priorities include protecting the temperate rainforest habitat along the coast of northern California to Alaska and Chilean Patagonia, as well as projects in environmentally sensitive regions of the western United States, central Russia, Bolivia, Namibia, Mexico, and various Caribbean nations. The Foundationís consumption program currently focuses on sustainable paper consumption and production. The Foundationís domestic population program seeks to encourage the United States to respond directly to the directives of President Clintonís Council on Sustainable Development by adopting a national policy that leads towards population stabilization. Land acquisition grants are targeted toward projects mostly in Latin America. Significant details and application instructions can be found on the Web site.
