Overview:

Mission

The basis for the Foundation is the conviction that all life on Earth is interconnected, and that the planet-wide activities of industrial society are destroying the fabric of life, whereas most indigenous societies recognize and act on the reciprocal relationships between humans, other beings and their environment. The purpose of the Foundation is the protection, restoration and support of ecological health and indigenous cultures throughout the world.  The Foundation has no interest in academic approaches which treat nature, animals or indigenous peoples as objects of study.  Instead, the Foundation will support individuals and organizations working directly for ecological health and cultural diversity and preservation.  The Foundation has a special interest in the protection of pristine wilderness areas and in work that supports young people in gaining respect for the earth.

History

Over the past two decades, nearly $2 million dollars of grants have been made to a wide variety of organizations that meet the goals of the Foundation. 

The Sweetgrass Foundation continues to thrive and the Trustees continue to carry on the mission of the By-Laws.  We hope to continue the great work that Glenn initiated for many generations to come.
