The Americana Foundation was established by Adolph H. Meyer and Ginger Meyer to support, through philanthropy, their varied personal interests. Their success in industry and their interest in agriculture and the protection of urban open space, combined with their deep knowledge of and appreciation for authentic American art, have been the guiding focus for the programs of the foundation.
The purpose of the Americana Foundation is to support educational and advocacy programs that address the preservation of American agriculture, the conservation of natural resources, and the protection and presentation of expressions of America's heritage.
We focus on two program areas of protection, preservation and education:
- American heritage expressed through its material culture
- Natural resources and agriculture through land use and growth management
