The Falconwood Foundation is a private grantmaking foundation led and funded primarily by investor Henry G. Jarecki.  The Foundation provides grants to numerous left-of-center organizations and causes ranging from education to medical research.
The Foundation gave most of its grants in 2017 to organizations focusing on arts and education, criminal justice reform, environmentalism, and medicine.
Several left-of-center criminal justice organizations were among the largest recipients of Falconwood Foundation grants in 2017. The Falconwood Foundation gave its largest grant in 2017 to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation in the amount of $556,000.  That same year, the Foundation gave $65,000 to the Southern Environmental Law Center, as well as $49,000 to the controversial, left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center. 
The Falconwood Foundation offered its second largest grant of 2017 to the Brightwater Fund, an organization combating water-borne illness, in the amount of $500,000.  In 2017, the Foundation offered many grants to medical research projects, as well as environmentalist organizations. These include a contribution to Greenpeace, a left-wing environmentalist group known globally for its radicalism. 
The Foundation gave 40.5 percent of all grants in 2017 to universities, research centers, or educational projects.  The top three educational grant recipients in 2017 were Columbia University ($414,040), the Institute of International Education ($335,000), and the Heidelberg University Association ($330,000). 
Leadership and Funding
The Falconwood Foundation is funded primarily by Henry Jarecki and the Timber Falls Trust. In 2017, 92 percent of all contributions to the Foundation were made by Jarecki and the Timber Falls Trust. The trust may be linked to Dr. Jarecki as well, given that he once ran a family foundation called the Timber Falls Foundation.  Jarecki is a prominent investor and psychiatrist who made his fortune dealing in silver and gold.
