Weeden Foundation


Weeden Foundation (1963; Bedford Hills NY; weedenfdn.org)

The Foundation‘s overarching mission is to protect biodiversity by focusing on three areas Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion in Northern California; High Divide in SW Montana; and Chilean Patagonia. The Foundation supplements “its specific geographical protections with advocacy support at the U.S. national policy level for wildlife corridors, the Endangered Species Act, and additional wilderness designation”. Its new program area is Leadership Training for Environmental Activism. To address the “adverse impact of economic and human population growth on biodiversity, the Foundation’s grantmaking includes both Consumption and Population programs”.
