Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily to organizations whose environmental programs address issues in WA and OR. Priority areas include protecting threatened rivers and forests, nurturing native fish populations, and conserving land and open space for ecological and recreational purposes. Preference will be given to requests from local groups working to improve their immediate environment and from statewide groups addressing general conservation and protection issues, rather than national organizations with projects in the Pacific Northwest. The foundation also supports teen pregnancy prevention projects which may include school-based health and education programs, mentoring projects, and community clinic programs providing information and services on birth control, choice, and sex education. .
