© Dwight Hiscano Conservation Resources serves as a consultant to foundations of any size which desire expert assistance in the review and evaluation of applications for conservation-related projects, to help review or establish criteria for high leverage grant-making, to help establish a new or revised focus area for environmental grant-making, or to proactively identify specific projects for which applications might be invited.
With respect to small foundations or family foundations, CRI serves as consultant program staff on an as-needed basis, or as advisors to trustees, in order to minimize administrative costs and to help maximize the leverage and effectiveness which can result from the grant-making efforts of these philanthropic organizations.
CRI also helps design and administer re-granting programs or small grants programs for conservation purposes for those foundations which desire to allocate some portion of their grant-making for these purposes.
Previously, CRI served as as an adviser to the Beneficia Foundation and the Mushette Family Foundation. We currently serve as consultants to the Gardinier Environmental Fund and the Johanette Wallerstein Institute.
