MISSION

The Agua Fund is a family foundation based in Washington, DC.

The Fund's mission is to improve the quality of life through support of work to protect the natural environment and to help the poor, disadvantaged, and underserved.

The Fund considers invited proposals only.

GRANTS

Environmental grants focus on protecting the watershed of the Shenandoah River in Virginia by addressing issues of land, water, and food.  Grants support organizations that advocate for resource protection, sustainable agriculture, and locally-produced food.  Environmental grants for Florida emphasize protection of the Gulf Coast.

Targets for social service grants are the vulnerable elderly in southwest Florida and Washington, DC.

Board-directed grants support arts and culture, disaster relief, women's rights in the Middle East, mental health care for returning veterans, and solar cooking.  Board-directed grants and those to organizations in Florida are made through our donor-advised fund at the Community Foundation of Collier County.
