GIVING WINGS TO NONPROFITS

THE PEGASUS FOUNDATION

The Pegasus Foundation

The Pegasus Foundation is an activist grant maker. Like the winged horse of Greek mythology, we seek to “give wings” to inspiring ideas put into action.

We identify, vet and fund nonprofit organizations who have shown demonstrable impact in these priority areas: Marine animal rescue, wildlife and habitat protection, and animal welfare.

We place a high value on collaborative projects, partner with those we fund over multiple years, and foster networking and communication among our grantees and others. The Pegasus Foundation also regularly initiates and implements its own projects and advocates for policy changes that advance its priority areas of interest. So that our dollars have the greatest strategic impact, we do not accept unsolicited requests.

and Protection

Pegasus Foundation has partnered with established and trusted partners such as IFAW, The Center for Coastal Studies, and others to protect and rehabilitate whales, dolphins and other marine mammals that are threatened.

Wildlife and Habitat
Protection

We are finding solutions to end the horrific slaughter of elephants, rhinos and other wildlife in Africa and Asia. We also are working with partners in North America to protect animal habitat and range.

Animal
Welfare

Our animal companions need help, protection, and loving care.  Pegasus Foundation supports a number of organizations which give a multitude of dogs, cats, horses and other animals a second chance.
