Quail Roost Foundation: Investing for a Healthy, Just and Sustainable WorldWritten by Emily Pugliese
A CarbonFree® partner since 2007 the Quail Roost Foundation makes national and international grants in the fields of All Creatures, Education, Emergency Relief, Health, Home Community, Justice, and Sustainability. By domestic and worldwide standards, their resources are small and are generally directed to organizations and projects for which small amounts can make a measurably large impact. Feeling that their mission should apply not only to their grant-making practices, but also to their everyday lives and activities, the Quail Roost Foundation has made a great effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Throughout the Foundation's first five years their principal administration operated solely on solar and wind-power. They have also partnered with us to offset the carbon footprint resulting from travel to their annual board meeting by supporting our Return to Forest project in Nicaragua. Since its inception, Quail Roost Foundation has allocated grant funds to non-profit organizations working to increase conservation, provide clean and healthy environments, and care for wildlife and domestic animals. They are committed to continuing to fund projects that enhance the sustainability and well-being of our world by supporting efforts in education, conservation and protection.
