The Berry Family Environmental Fund

The Berry siblings - Gordon, Lynne and Jeff, have throughout their lives held an abiding respect for the natural environment. When Gordon decided to give back to the community, it was a "natural fit" to provide a dedicated fund to support environmental projects.


The Berry Environmental Grant may be given to encourage the enhancement of the natural environment within the Bisbee granting area. The grant proposals may include, but would not be limited to, such things as tree, shrub and other landscape enhancement projects in public, and in certain situations, private locations; water harvesting and site contouring for water catchment; community garden support; community cleanup; and other conservation projects. 


Applications will be accepted during the annual open grant cycle from January 1st - March 1st.
