The Sall Family Foundation is a private foundation founded in 1992 by John and Virginia Sall.

Founders’ Charter

John and Virginia Sall envision a world where our common natural heritage is valued, human needs are balanced with sustainability, scientific inquiry enriches us, and decisions are made with the best information.

To promote this vision, we make grants to test new ideas, to catalyze change that should happen, to promote collaboration among people and institutions, and to sustain those institutions that innovate, inform, and empower others toward this vision.

The tradition of the Foundation is to invest for worldwide human development, conservation and the environment, public health, and science, especially when these areas intersect.
