The Agua Fund, established in November 2002, is a family foundation based in

Washington, DC. The mission of the Fund 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.


The Shenandoah watershed is the only river in Virginia that directly affects the Chesapeake Bay. The watershed includes a large part of the George Washington National Forest, Shenandoah National Park, a segment of the Appalachian Trail, important Civil War battlefields, and productive farmland. The Fund supports local land trusts, watershed groups, and organizations that advocate for smart growth.   Southwest Florida includes some of the fastest-growing areas along the Gulf Coast. The Agua Fund supports land trust and land use advocacy efforts to protect biodiversity and water supply as well as social service organizations in low-income areas.   Glade Park in Colorado and the Dolores Triangle in Utah comprise almost a thousand square miles of unfragmented landscape. The Agua Fund supports efforts to encourage permanent protection of working ranches, protect wilderness areas, and strengthen management of public lands.   Cape Cod and Nantucket Island, both beautiful and environmentally sensitive, are also sole source aquifers for a rapidly-growing population. The Agua Fund supports efforts to protect and restore the groundwater, ponds, rivers, and estuaries.
