Areas of Interest

Environmental Programs:

We supply financial assistance to organizations that engage in the preservation of habitat that supports biodiversity and quiet remote recreation in Washington or Oregon. We believe that it is most important to preserve habitat that is part of a larger functioning ecosystem. Local groups working to improve their immediate environment and statewide groups addressing general conservation and protection issues will be given preference over national organizations with projects in the Pacific Northwest.

Teen Pregnancy Prevention:

We supply financial assistance to organizations that engage in teen pregnancy prevention projects in Washington or Oregon. The project must apply evidence-based techniques that maximally reduce teen pregnancy. They may include school-based health and education programs, and community clinic programs providing information and services on birth control, choice, and sex education.

The project must have its own project budget, work plan, and criteria for success.
