2013 Sarah Forslund Fund grants made

The Sarah Forslund Fund for Environmental Leadership recently awarded their three annual grants.

A donor-advised fund of The Sierra Fund, supported entirely by individual donations in memory of TSF’s founding board member Sarah Forslund, the Fund awards annual grants to Green Corps, an organization led by a Green Corps alum, and a project or organization in the Sierra.

This year’s grants are to:

  • Green Corps $6,000 — The Fund’s annual gift to the organization that has trained hundreds of young leaders in the skills of organizing and advocacy.
  • Our Children’s Trust $2,000An organization that is amplifying the voice of the youngest generation through film and legal action encouraging local, state and national governments to implement enforceable, science-based Climate Recovery Plans.
  • Deer Creek Tribute Trail $2,000 — A project that will help provide recreational, open space, wildlife, flood management and water quality benefits in the Deer Creek watershed for the people of Nevada City and County.

These organizations and projects are all examples of the Fund’s mission: to better the world through furthering the values by which Sarah Forslund lived her life: developing effective environmental leadership, supporting strong communities, and preserving our natural resources.
