The mission of the Irwin Andrew Porter Foundation is to fund innovative organizations that work at the intersection of culture, development and environment. Projects should be community driven and inspire active participation during the project and into the future.

An ideal project will protect and restore the natural environment; celebrate and sustain distinctive local culture, and support a sustainable economy.
