Bright Horizon Foundation: Grants for Environmental Conservation

OVERVIEW: The Bright Horizon Foundation invests in environmental conservation efforts across the United States.

IP TAKE: This funder does not award many grants each year and typically awards its environmental conservation grants to larger, more established organizations. Unfortunately, it lacks transparency and a website, limiting information about its grantmaking strategies and application process.

PROFILE: Established in New York and Delaware in 2000, Bright Horizon supports global security causes, as well as organizations that work in conservation, global health, and strengthen democracy across the United States. The foundation maintains a low public profile, does not operate a website and does not employ a formal staff; however, its latest tax filings indicate an interest in environmental conservation causes.

Grant amounts range widely, from $10,000 to over $2 million. Most awards, however, are for $10,000 to $500,000. Past grantees in the environmental conservation field include the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Trust for Public Land.

The Bright Horizon Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
