Request a Grant Writer

Grants generally ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 to Oregon nonprofit grassroots organizations for freshwater habitat and natural forest preservation and restoration. Funding is intended for projects that address the habitat challenges created by Oregon's recent droughts and floods, as well as protect the forests that are vulnerable to negative management changes.

Requests must include clear benchmarks and quantifiable outcomes. Overall, the Foundation will support proposals that serve to measurably improve habitat conditions for freshwater and forest habitats throughout Oregon.

Additionally, the JFF Anchor Opportunity will fund a network of no more than ten regional environmental grassroots organizations in Oregon to protect and recover freshwater habitats. Any organization that believes it fits the description of an anchor can apply. Each anchor organization, chosen by the Trustees in the spring, will receive a base grant of up to $10,000 and also be invited to a daylong fall retreat to discuss the top environmental issues with the other anchor organizations and the Trustees, consultants, and staff of The Jubitz Family Foundation.
