BELDON’S GRANT MAKING PROGRAMS

Beldon made long-term grants in two program areas: Key States and Human Health and the Environment. A third program, the Discretionary Fund, allowed the foundation to take quick advantage of policy opportunities or respond to new environmental threats. It also provided a way to fund cross-program advocacy tools and activities.

GRANT MAKING STRATEGIES

With only ten years to help environmental advocates shift from playing defense to positioning themselves to win policy victories, Beldon developed three main strategies:

Build Capacity and Clout

Support Civic Engagement

Broaden the Base of Support

GRANT MAKING PRINCIPLES

Beldon’s program work was guided by several principles it considered essential to accomplishing key goals:

Advocacy. Support advocacy aimed at bringing public policy change.

Focus. Focus resources on a select set of high impact strategies.

Commitment. Make steady, patient, large investments in strategies.
