The Hugh And Jane Ferguson Foundation
The Foundation, founded in 1987, is a family foundation that supports nonprofits in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. The Foundationís funding priorities are dedicated to the preservation and restoration of nature, including wildlife and their required habitats. The Foundation also supports the institutions that present nature and the areaís rich cultural heritage to the public. Priority is given to community-based projects working to restore habitat and wildlife by activating volunteers and local residents; collaborative and coalition projects involving a number of organizations working together to share strengths and maximize effectiveness, and cultural and natural history institutions exploring the history and traditions of the greater Puget Sound area. Also of interest are projects from Native American communities on issue related to cultural preservation and protection of natural resources. Grants are awarded to nonprofits in Washington and Alaska. The Foundation has historically made grants to groups in Montana, Idaho, and Oregon so the trustees may occasionally invite proposals from those states but only by invitation. Additional information including application instructions can be found on the Web site.
