Our mission is to support programs and activities with important impacts on the environment and urban life.
The Fund for the Environment and Urban Life (“The Fund”) was established in 2006. Its 2010 budget is $600,000, which is now funded. The gifting strategy is to focus on innovative projects that have strong potential for replication in other settings, or otherwise have significant impacts in the environment and urban life fields, and especially where the two intersect. Another important element of the gifting strategy is to foster, when possible, the involvement of the business community with non-profit and other public purpose activities that The Fund can support, to leverage the impact of the available resources. In this way, it is hoped that path-breaking initiatives and results can be achieved, and that broad communications (e.g., media efforts) about the results might be obtained. The Fund also uses the unique skills of its Advisory Board members to assist our grantees and help assure the best possible results.
To supplement the existing financial resources from its founders, The Fund welcomes contributions from parties sharing The Fund’s vision. The Fund is an IRS-approved private non-operating foundation; contributions are tax-deductible. Contributions will be applied 100% to grants; our administrative costs have been fully funded.
