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 to organizations that purchase, protect, and care for redwood forests, ensuring that they are here for future generations to experience and enjoy. This is the last year of the Mohrhardt program, as the fund will be spent down in the final cycle of granting.

The Evelyn Tilden Mohrhardt Fund was established for the protection and preservation of redwood trees and endangered animal species.

We will invite a limited number of organizations to apply for the funds based on the services they provide. Only invited organizations may apply.
