The Brainerd Foundation
The Foundation protects the environment of the Northwest and builds broad citizen support for conservation. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on organizations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory. Grantmaking is earmarked for projects in conservation policy, place-based conservation, and conservation capacity. Of particular interest are state-level policy priorities that build a track record of success and demonstrate the benefits of pro-conservation policies to communities and policy leaders. Place-based conservation strategies should engage diverse and strategic constituencies. Also funded are projects that address the capacity and effectiveness of conservation advocates. Other funding areas include the Catalyst Fund, the Grassroots Fund, and the Opportunity Fund. Grants are awarded for project and general support. The Trustees meet three times a year in April, June, and November. There are no deadlines. Additional information is available on the Web site.
