Whether the health of our climate, air and water, the guarantee of reproductive rights, or our interdependent relationship with the natural world, the Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation supports those working boldly toward a healthy, harmonious world for people and nature.

Are you a small group with a time-sensitive need?

The Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Latitude Fund, our new grantmaking program intended to provide quick-turnaround grants to grassroots groups working on environmental and reproductive justice in Texas to enhance capacity, functioning and impact. The inspiration for the Latitude Fund came from our grantee partners, who shared that real-time funding for internal needs can be a game-changer for community groups leading with a justice lens. We’re particularly grateful to the members of the Latitude Fund Committee, a group of leaders with grassroots experience charged with making grant award decisions for the Fund.
