The Colcom Foundation
The Foundation focuses its philanthropic efforts on environmental sustainability, natural resource preservation, land and water conservation, and efforts to establish a sustainable population. The Foundation gives priority to national organizations that acknowledge the impact of human population growth on U.S. environmental sustainability, natural resource depletion, and land and watershed degradation. Regionally, the Foundation is committed to ensuring the quality of life and environmental sustainability in southwestern Pennsylvania. Here, the Foundation favors programs that aggressively address watershed remediation, natural resource preservation, air and water quality, and farmland and wildlife habitat conservation. In addition, the Foundation directs community grantmaking to programs that enhance Pittsburgh’s vitality and livability. Examples include programs to enhance parks and trails, expand public gardens and streetscapes, create and maintain art for public spaces, provide environmental education, and sustain recreational facilities. Letters of inquiry are accepted at any time. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
