Overview
This special initiative renewal grant would support the Pew Trusts’ work with the International Boreal Conservation Campaign to secure permanent protection for half of Canada’s 1.2 billion-acre boreal forest. The boreal is the largest intact forest in the world. The Hewlett Foundation has supported the Trusts’ boreal protection since 2005. During that time, 222 million acres have been set aside for permanent protection, and another 198 million will be managed for sustainable use. In 2015, the Campaign expects to secure protection for 15 million additional acres through provincial plans, and another 100 million acres designated for sustainable development.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Pew Research Center's work on American politics  
The Pew Research Center conducts some of the nation’s most respected nonpartisan survey research about American attitudes toward politics and policy. Since 1987, Pew Research has conducted a periodic "political typology" survey, sorting Americans into cohesive groups based on their values, political beliefs, and party affiliation. These studies have helped reveal substantial political and social differences within as well as across members of each political party. This grant will support additional U.S. democracy research. Results of this expanded study will provide a rich database for academics, journalists, and others studying democracy in the United States.
for Western Public Lands protection  
This renewal grant will support the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Western Public Lands Campaign, which works with communities to advance policies that protect national public lands of the American West.
for support of the House Chiefs of Staff project  
The Pew Charitable Trusts lays the foundation for effective policies and practices by invigorating civic life, conducting research, informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue a common cause, and insisting on tangible results. Pew’s Safe Spaces Project provides a nonpartisan, nonpolitical "safe space" to foster bipartisan relationship building and management best practices that can lead to better informed and more effective public policy. This grant will enable Pew to continue its work with chiefs of staff in the U.S. House of Representatives in an effort to build, strengthen, and sustain a bipartisan organization that will foster relationships, share best practices, and strengthen the capacity of Congress.
