Our Mission

We are a private foundation whose mission is to foster community-based conservation of landscapes and seascapes and the biocultural diversity found in these places. We provide small grants to grassroots organizations and other NGOs in selected countries and geographies in Central America, Andean South America, and West Africa. In support of our local roots, we also provide grants for community-based conservation and arts and cultural projects in coastal communities on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
