For Grantseekers


Grantmaking Focus Area

The Gamble Foundation prioritizes organizations that focus on:

  • Environmental and agricultural programs that promote a deeper collaboration between the management approaches of conservation and preservation. We seek programs that use both of these management approaches toward land stewardship on publicly and privately conserved and managed lands.

Grantmaking Guidelines

  • The foundation will fund general operating support, but has a special interest in helping organizations to develop their sustainability.
  • The foundation supports organizations that measure the effectiveness of their services.
  • The foundation supports 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations serving the residents of San Francisco Bay Area counties.
  • In general, the foundation does not support annual appeals, religious entities, medical research, individuals, or endowments.
