Current Projects

The Sierra Nevada Foundation distributes funding annually to increase the scope of vital work within the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. This area encompasses some of the most pristine environment and treasured national parks in the world. As donor funding increases the goal is to have a competitive grant cycle available each year for nonprofits serving the Sierra Nevada Conservancy.
