The Philanthropy Program in 2010
In November, the Hewlett Foundation used its newsletter to reflect on its many roles in philanthropy. One highlight was a unique collaboration among foundations and government that has made it possible to restore 15,100 acres of industrial salt ponds around the San Francisco Bay to their natural state as a rich mosaic of tidal wetlands. Hewlett contributed $12 million to the effort. Here is a view of the salt ponds before restoration. Photo courtesy of Judy Irving/Pelican Media.
In 2010, the Philanthropy Program made 31 grants to 28 organizations, totaling over $5 million.
