About this funder:



The Davis Conservation Foundation is a public charitable foundation. Its broad purpose is the wise utilization, protection and advancement of our physical environment and the different natural forms of life that inhabit it – including wildlife, sea life and mankind as they are impacted by the environment.

Funding Priorities

The Foundation supports organizations whose areas of interest include projects and activities related to wildlife, wildlife habitat, environmental protection or outdoor recreation. Projects that strengthen volunteer activity and outreach/community involvement in the above categories are of particular interest.

Geographic Priorities

The foundation's highest geographic priority is Northern New England (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts), particularly projects involving the Northern Forest and the Gulf of Maine. The next geographic priority is the remainder of New England and only infrequently are grants made outside of New England.
