The Foundation looks for high risk, high potential payoff opportunities to exert unusual leverage. It has a special interest in demonstrating innovative approaches that promise to solve multiple problems simultaneously. It strives to build the intellectual foundations and political support needed for sweeping innovation.
The Bullitt Foundation places high value on being nimble and able to respond quickly to emerging threats and opportunities, while still acting with deliberation and strategic sensibility. At any moment, within its broad mission, the Foundation will be focused on a relatively small subset of explicit priorities that appear especially ripe for progress. The Foundation recognizes that environmental issues are inherently interconnected, and it marshals staff and financial resources across its programs to achieve success.

The Foundation’s geographic focus is the Emerald Corridor – the region bounded by Vancouver, BC to the north, Portland to the south, and the Cascades to the east. Within that geographic range, the work is targeted to specific sub-regions associated with the three major population centers and the more rural areas experiencing significant growth pressures.

The Foundation invites inquiries from nonprofit organizations that are working to safeguard the natural environment by promoting responsible human activities and sustainable communities in the Pacific Northwest. The funding region is defined as the Emerald Corridor, consisting of the urban area west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. Within that geographic range, a priority will be placed on projects and initiatives that promote sustainability within the three major metropolitan regions anchored by the cities of Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC.
To be eligible, US organizations must have a current nonprofit tax status under the Internal Revenue Act. Applicants must have a 501(c)(3) determination letter, or identify themselves as a validly organized and operating municipal corporation, public agency, or Native American tribe.
Canadian applicants must have a Canadian Certificate of Incorporation and charity registration documents to be eligible.
Charitable grantees sometimes contract to provide fiscal sponsorship for projects of other groups. However, such relationships are strictly between the grantee and the other groups. The charitable grantee is responsible for administering the grant, for ensuring that no funds are misspent, and for achieving the objectives described in the proposal. Organizations that have applied for charitable tax status are not eligible to apply for a grant from The Bullitt Foundation until their charitable status has been acknowledged in writing by the federal government.
The Bullitt Foundation does not make grants to individuals.
