The San Francisco office of Dean Witter, located
at 45 Montgomery Street,
Dean Witter interrupted his career to volunteer for duty in both World War I and World War II, during which he attained the rank of colonel.
During Dean Witter's lifetime, he found recreation in hunting and fishing and in enjoyment of the outdoors. In business and as a fisherman, Colonel Witter enjoyed pursuing the difficult task. He preferred the elusive trout to the easy fishing of a well-stocked pond. In this spirit, The Dean Witter Foundation seeks to practice imaginative grantmaking in the fields of finance and conservation.
It is the policy of The Dean Witter Foundation to support specific wildlife conservation projects in Northern California and seminal opportunities to improve and extend environmental education. The Foundation makes additional grants to launch and expand innovative K-12 public education initiatives.
We encourage prospective applicants to telephone
or write the Consultant to determine whether their proposed program falls
within the Foundation's areas of interest and grantmaking priorities
