Mohrhardt Grants – Preserving the Redwoods
Evelyn Tilden Mohrhardt grew up with a close connection and love for the redwoods. As a girl she spent summers near Calaveras and visited the majestic redwood giants in Big Basin. Her grandfather helped build a toll road over Ebbertt’s Pass in the Sierras, and nearby Mt. Reba was named for her mother.
Evelyn’s dedication to these natural wonders lives on through The Evelyn Tilden Mohrhardt Fund, which was established for the protection and preservation of redwood trees and the wildlife that are a part of that habitat.
As the steward of her legacy, The San Francisco Foundation developed the Mohrhardt Grant Program, an annual program that grants $25,000 to $50,000 to organizations that purchase, protect, and care for redwood forests, ensuring that they are here for future generations to experience and enjoy.
The Evelyn Tilden Mohrhardt Fund was established for the protection and preservation of redwood trees and endangered animal species. Priority will be given to projects or programs that protect or preserve redwood trees.
