About this funder:



The Oak Hill Fund believes that restoring native tree species will directly improve our natural ecosystems, as well as our society. If we don't preserve all of these unique species and their habitat, we stand to lose an incredible biological resource. 

We hope to support the following efforts:

  • Active restoration of diminished continental U.S. forest species (examples include Eastern Hemlock, Balsam Fir, American Chestnut and Longleaf Pine.)

  • Protection of native tree habitat through forest land preservation (can include property easements, as well as creation of newly preserved lands through either state/federal acquisition.)

  • Support of science-based research, seed orchard development and other associated expenses involved in species restoration.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • The Oak Hill Fund only awards grants to organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
  • The Oak Hill Fund supports overhead (administrative and fundraising expenses) required for the proposed project. 
  • Support will be limited to the continental United States.


  • The Oak Hill Fund prefers project-specific requests in lieu of requests for general operating support.


  • Additional overhead, such as often established by colleges and universities, will not be considered.
  • The Oak Hill Fund does not support capital campaigns, endowments, individuals, bricks and mortar projects (excluding clinics under the WRHRJ Program), books or films.
