Welcome

The mission of the Prospect Hill Foundation is to advance the human experience while ensuring the well-being of the earth. The Foundation was established in New York in 1959 by the late Elizabeth G. Beinecke and William S. Beinecke, then President and now the retired Chairman of the Sperry and Hutchinson Company. The Foundation makes grants in four program areas: Environment, Nuclear Disarmament & Nonproliferation, Reproductive Health and Justice, and Criminal Justice; and additionally supports the philanthropic interests and activities of Beinecke family members through Sponsored Grants in the areas of arts and culture, environmental conservation, civic affairs, social services and educational institutions. The Foundation’s grants support activities mainly in the northeastern United States.
