Beinecke founded The Prospect Hill Foundation, with a mission to advance the human experience while ensuring the well-being of the earth. Over the past six decades, the Foundation has pursued this mission by making grants in four program areas: Environment, Nuclear Disarmament & Nonproliferation, Reproductive Health & Justice and Youth Justice. Mainly supporting activities in the northeastern United States, The Prospect Hill Foundation’s Environment Program has focused on coastal waters and oceans in the southern New England region, stretching from Cape Cod to the Hudson Canyon; and funding advocacy and policy reform opportunities in order to improve water quality, advance marine conservation and restore coastal habitats. Looking forward, The Prospect Hill Foundation will concentrate on a new program area, building upon the justice work the Foundation has been supporting and focusing on young people. The intent is to fund intersectional and grassroots efforts that are community led and that challenge systemic racism and gender-based oppression.
