Winslow Foundation: Grants for Environmental Conservation

OVERVIEW: The Winslow Foundation gives broadly to environmental conservation organizations located in the United States.

IP TAKE: This funder awards both project specific and general operating support grants.

PROFILE: Established in 1987, the Winslow Foundation maintains a low public profile, does not have a website and employs a small formal staff of just three people. According to tax filings however, the foundation appears to have an interest in supporting causes related to environmental conservation, civil society and on a smaller scale, women’s empowerment.

Winslow Foundation grant amounts range widely from a low of $500 to a high of $100,000. According to tax filings, past environmental conservation grantees include Rainforest Action Network, which received a general and unrestricted grant; and High Country Conservation Advocates, which also received a general and unrestricted grant.

This foundation is not transparent regarding its grantmaking activities, guidelines and eligibility requirements. Tax filings indicate that the Winslow Foundation does not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry or requests for funding. Grantseekers are encouraged to contact foundation staff for detailed grant information.
