Overview:

The mission of The Sills Family Foundation is to help children from poor families live up to their highest promise. Nationally, we do this by giving grants to organizations that work on the front lines of supporting:

  • Environmental Justice with a concentration on reducing contaminants that harm babies and fetuses.

Environmental Justice with a concentration on reducing contaminants that harm babies and fetuses.

Toxic chemicals are released into our environment every day. Children consume pollutants in their food, air and water, their toys, candy, even baby bottles. These hazards can cause serious health problems, ranging from asthma and cancer to brain impairment and behavioral problems. They take a greater toll on the most vulnerable: pregnant women, fetuses and children.

    We want to protect families from lead, mercury and other toxic compounds. We support groups that advocate against poor communities carrying a greater share of the toxic burden. And we invest in programs that work to reduce pollutants in our air, water, food and homes so that the minds and bodies of our infants and children stay healthy and strong.
