The Christensen Fund

The Christensen Fund is a private foundation founded in 1957. We are a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization governed by an independent Board of Trustees.

Since 2003, the focus of our work has been biocultural diversity. Under this complex, holistic approach, we seek to support the resilience of living diversity at landscape and community level around the world in partnerships with Indigenous Peoples and others. Our grantmaking is currently focused around special geographic priority regions, our global program, and some work in our local San Francisco Bay Area community.
