Established in 2003, the Jimmy F. New Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit foundation that honors company founder Jim New’s commitment to conserving natural resources. The foundation’s mission is to provide resources to increase the knowledge, awareness, and conservation of native habitats and natural communities.

The foundation’s board of directors, which consists of external directors and Cardno JFNew employees, annually awards grants to environmental and natural resource projects. Cardno JFNew matches employee contributions to the foundation dollar-for-dollar, which increases its grant-making capability.

The board of directors determines the funding priorities, focusing on those projects that  are determined will make the greatest impact with our financial resources.
