Reclaiming the Sierra

The Sierra Fund

The Sierra Fund is an innovative community foundation for the environment, established in 2001. We partner with private donors and public agencies to save the Sierra by increasing and organizing investment in protecting and restoring the region’s human and natural resources. We pursue this mission in three ways:

  • Advocacy to bring public funding to the region;
  • Philanthropy to provide a vehicle for private funding in the region; and
  • Strategic Campaigns that pursue critically needed programs for the Sierra Nevada.

Since 2005, our Reclaiming the Sierra Initiative has been our main strategic campaign.

The Sierra Fund has leveraged more than $90 million in public and private funding for key efforts in the Sierra, including playing a leadership role in establishment of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy in 2004.
