We take the long view
The need to conserve biodiversity is urgent. At the same time, at JRS we recognize the complexity of the work and are committed to long-term investments.
We invest in our Grantees, and we learn alongside them
We invest in creating the skills, knowledge and tools, and developing the relationships that will help our grantee partners succeed. We view our grantees as partners and, as challenges and opportunities arise over the course of a project, we work together to adapt to new circumstances.
We bear the risk
As an independent foundation, we are not subject to the political forces that often lead to short-term approaches. This allows us to invest in riskier projects which, although these carry a higher rate of failure, can lead to breakthrough results.
