Mission

The Sierra Fund’s mission is to restore ecosystem resiliency and build community capacity in the Sierra Nevada.

The Sierra Fund is a place-based organization. We are of the Sierra Nevada and for the Sierra Nevada, and the nature of this place informs how we have approached our mission. We have identified four strategic approaches in our program activities:

  1. Identify and fill key data gaps needed to address identified problems, and develop pilot projects that demonstrate effective solutions and invite replication.
  2. Engage diverse leaders in the work to articulate, advocate for, and win adoption of specific policy changes identified through our program that are needed to advance our mission.
  3. Improve visibility to target audiences of the problems and solutions that we have developed, and involve these audiences in collaborative action to implement the solutions.
  4. Build regional and TSF organizational capacity to be ready to create and seize new opportunities.
