The Whitehead Foundation honors and extends the philanthropic legacy of John C. Whitehead through support for mission-based organizations working within four interwoven and overlapping core themes; many of our supported projects touch on multiple themes. Present grantees, with links to specific initiatives, include:

Environmental Justice, Stewardship & Climate Emergency

Agroecology, Food Sovereignty & Economic Resilience

Human Rights, Racial Justice & Reconciliation

Youth Leadership, Experiential Education & Liberal Arts

The Whitehead Foundation aims to align investment assets with programmatic values and objectives, including divestment from fossil fuels, petrochemicals, factory farming, fast food and junk media.

Though we do not accept unsolicited proposals, we welcome dialogue and potential collaboration regarding areas of shared concern.
