Campion Foundation

What is Campion Foundation Grant?

The Campion Foundation’s guiding principles are: leveraging resources, investing in leaders, taking informed risks and seizing opportunities. They bring their principles with a strong urgency to 3 areas that benefit from their philanthropic efforts: protecting the wilderness, an end to homelessness and in strengthening non-profits.

The foundation firmly believes that:

  • In Western United States and in Canada, the wildest places must be forever preserved.
  • Homelessness should not be an eventuality in any community but should be a rarity and a temporary setback.
  • A powerful force in the change of a society is a tough and vibrant nonprofit sector.

The foundation collaborates and challenge with organizations that embrace innovative ways in handling environment and social issues for lasting change.

The Campion Foundation wants to do more than give out checks. It wants to control the resources that they have to make a strong impact. They do believe that creative collaborations with our experienced staff, visionary non-profit leaders and risk-taking trustees can accomplish more than they ever could.
