Welcome to the New England Biolabs Foundation!

We are a private foundation whose mission is to foster community-based conservation of landscapes and seascapes and the biocultural diversity found in these places. We support grassroots organizations and other NGOs in selected countries of Central America, South America, and West Africa. Occasionally, grants are also made in Tanzania and Papua New Guinea. In addition, in support of our local roots, we also provide grants for community-based conservation and cultural projects in coastal communities on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

Our maximum international grant size is $10,000, with grants typically ranging from $3,000 to $8,000.

Local grants range from $1,000-$5,000.
