Environmental Engagement, Stewardship & Solutions

The well-being of all Americans depends on a natural environment that is robust and vibrant. Work aimed at sustaining the environment and reversing sources of environmental degradation is thus a critical investment in our common future.

In 2017 the Foundations launched a three-year, invitation-only program that provides grant support to organizations that play a key role in public engagement and education as well as in designing and implementing projects that improve environmental health. 

The following organizations have been supported during this period:

  • Chesapeake Bay Foundation
  • Cornell Lab of Ornithology
  • Gulf of Maine Research Institute
  • Marine Conservation Institute
  • Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
  • Mote Marine Laboratory
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • Ocean Conservancy
  • Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
  • Woods Hole Research Center
  • World Wildlife Fund

We are currently evaluating the results of this initiative. More information about AVDF funding in this area will be available in the spring of 2021.
