The Kinsman Foundation’s mission is to encourage the enjoyment of life through traditional Oregonian and American values. The Foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations in Oregon and southern Washington that address the following priority areas: The Historic Preservation and Restoration grant category supports the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, and reconstruction of historic buildings, structures, and related sites. The Native Wildlife Rehabilitation and Appreciation grant category primarily supports wildlife rehabilitation programs offering urgent care to injured and orphaned wildlife native to Oregon and Washington. Small Grant requests of up to $5,000 are accepted throughout the year. Conventional Grant requests of over $5,000 must be submitted by August 1, 2017. (The Betty Kinsman Fund for Arts, Culture, and Humanities has a separate application process.) Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about the application guidelines.
