Overview:

The James E. Dutton Foundation is a charitable foundation providing financial support to organizations working on projects which benefit wildlife, animal causes, environmental preservation, and outdoors education.

We believe it is our responsibility to care for animals and the environment. We work towards protecting the outdoors, so it can provide a healthy home for wildlife and be a place where humans can learn, experience nature, and enrich their lives.

Our Approach To Giving

Jim Dutton was passionate about protecting the environment as a home for wildlife and a refuge for people. Our primary goal is to fulfill the charitable intent of Jim Dutton and support organizations that benefit wildlife and/or animal related causes. We honor his memory by providing financial support to organizations, programs, or individuals working on projects related to environmental preservation, animal protection, and outdoors education.

We have supported many kinds of organizations. Some provide direct aid to wildlife or domestic animals in distress. Others support individuals interested in enjoying or caring for our environment and our natural resources. Yet others study the relationship of man and the environment, or teach young children about biology.

All of the grants we make seek to positively impact the environment and wildlife, human life, or both.

Our Guidelines for Grantmaking

We measure our success as an organization on how well our grants:

  • Positively impact the environment, wildlife, and animal life, or
  • Enhance human life through nature-related activities and education.

We base grantmaking decisions on how well we believe a proposal will accomplish these goals and how well the project fits with our mission statement.

We also consider the outcomes of previously awarded grants, based on a report we require all grantees to file after funds are disbursed. Grantees reflect on the most important activities the grant produced. They must state the positive impact the activities had on the environment, animals, and/or people and be clear about how they measure success.

We use grant reports and feedback from grantees to aid us in grantmaking decisions.
