Grants to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts nonprofit organizations to promote environmental stewardship in the northern New England region. The Foundation will consider applications related to wildlife, their habitat, outdoor recreation, and environmental protection. Particular interest is given to projects that strengthen volunteer activity and community outreach and involvement.

The Foundation's broad purpose is the wise utilization, protection, and advancement of the physical environment and the different natural forms of life that inhabit it, including wildlife, sea life and mankind as they are impacted by the environment.

The Foundation’s highest geographic priority is Northern New England, particularly projects involving the Northern Forest and the Gulf of Maine. The next geographic priority is the remainder of New England and only infrequently are grants made outside of New England.

The Foundation does not normally make multiple-year gifts.

The Foundation supports only organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code and not private foundations under Section 509(a) of the code.

The Foundation has a 509(a)(3) foundation status and is prohibited from making grants to other 509(a)(3) organizations. The Foundation requires evidence of the applicant’s 501(c)(3) and 509(a) status for its files.

In the case of fiscal sponsorships, additional information is required and the applicant should contact the Foundation office for further discussion.


-The Foundation does not make grants to individuals, nor does it support annual giving campaigns, deficit reduction, scholarships, fellowships, loans or travel.

-In order to support as many worthwhile organizations as possible, the Foundation discourages organizations that receive a grant from submitting subsequent requests within 24 months from the deadline date. In addition, declined applicants should not submit a request for the same project within 12 months from the deadline date.

Applications must be received by April 10 and October 10. Trustees meet in May and November to consider requests. Applications for deadlines that fall on a holiday or weekend must be received by the next business day.

The Foundation does NOT accept applications via email.

The Foundation normally notifies applicants of the Trustees’ decision within one week of each regular meeting, and applicants receiving grants may expect to receive payment within a month of notification.
