The Environment

The Ittleson Foundation supports innovative pilot, model and demonstration projects that will help move individuals, communities, and organizations from environmental awareness to environmental activism by changing attitudes and behaviors.

We particularly seek to encourage and nurture environmental action through:

  • supporting the present generation of environmental activists, whether professionals or volunteers through education, training and other activities
  • educating and engaging the next generation of environmentalists with a special interest in supporting the training of those who are teaching that generation
  • strengthening the infrastructure of the environmental movement with a particular focus on efforts at the grassroots and statewide levels
  • activating new constituencies, particularly those focused on environmental equity issues
