The Christensen Fund is seeking applications from organisations in order to provide financial support for indigenous-led and community based organizations.
The Christensen Fund is a private foundation founded in 1957 and based in San Francisco, California. The fund focus on the bicultural – the rich but neglected adaptive interweave of people and place, culture and ecology. Its mission is to buttress the efforts of people and institutions who believe in a bio-diverse world infused with artistic expression and work to secure ways of life and landscapes that are beautiful, bountiful and resilient.
The Fund seeks to support the resilience of living diversity at landscape and community level around the world in partnerships with Indigenous peoples and others.
