our mission


The Betlach Family Foundation was founded in effort to help important environmental issues, and promote and support notable contemporary art.

Our Environment Program provides grants that:

  1. Help conserve regions around the globe by keeping them wild
  2. Provide funding for research of specific species that are struggling to survive in this changing world
  3. Help educate and inspire people to protect the natural world around them through books and other educational programs

Our Contemporary Art Program provides grants that support art that ranges from performance art to international group shows, as well as a focus on education.

Since its founding in 1999, the Betlach Family Foundation has helped support more than forty organizations, artists, and events. Please go to Our Contributions to find out more.
