Note: Every grant applicant must include a letter of recommendation from any HDR employees who are actively involved in the organization.

If an applicant does not have an HDR employee sponsor, it will not be considered for a grant.
What We Support
Our work at HDR makes a difference in people’s lives. Through our Foundation, we seek to fund organizations located in the communities in which our employees live and work. Eligible applicants include U.S.-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, federally recognized tribal governments, and political subdivisions such as school districts, instrumentalities or libraries.
We provide funding for discrete projects that show promise for lasting impact. Preference is given to fund nonprofits where HDR employees are highly engaged.
- Environmental science
- Consulting and planning
- Active lifestyles
- Wellness education
- Preventative healthcare
- Alternative healthcare delivery methods
- Active transportation modes, such as walking or biking
- Water, energy and waste reduction projects
- Innovative, small-scale renewable energy and water reuse
- Community-led environmental restoration efforts
We consider our large grants on an annual basis. The grants are greater than $15,000 and one year in duration. We will review multi-year requests only for projects with significant outcomes. In these cases, the grantee must clearly demonstrate the significance and advantage of funding a multi-year request. Our online application must be completed to be considered for any grant funding. Grant recipients will be contacted with the foundation's decision once approved by the Foundation Board.
