Funding is available to new grantees only; current or previous grantees are not eligible.

The Campbell Foundation’s Pacific Initiative strives to identify opportunities in the field that a) are gaining political momentum, b) present a great opportunity to leverage resources of all kinds, and c) are innovative from a business and social perspective. Resources are allocated to projects in these areas:
- Water Quality (California)
- Land-Sea Connection (California)
- Protection of Special Places (California)

The Campbell Foundation’s Chesapeake Initiative seeks to accelerate the pace of nutrient reduction in the Bay through engagement of diverse stakeholders and partnerships between agricultural interests and environmental concerns that forge new paths of working together. The Foundation endeavors to identify, broaden and enhance leadership and grassroots advocacy by building capacity for those who chart a sensible course for the future, with a wide view of the needs and trade-offs.
