Support for Conservation Efforts in New England and Upper New York State
The primary mission of the Fields Pond Foundation is to provide financial assistance to nature and land conservation organizations that are community-based and that serve to increase environmental awareness by involving local residents in conservation issues. The Foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations in the six New England states and upper New York State that request one of the following: project grants for trailmaking and other enhancement of public access to conservation lands, rivers, coastlines, and other natural resources; land acquisition for conservation; assistance in establishment of endowments as a means of funding stewardship of conservation areas; and support for related education programs and publications as components of a land protection project. Grant applications may be submitted throughout the year. Application guidelines and forms are available on the Foundation’s website.
