Climate change is an undeniable reality. Every year, we observe more alarming trends — rising sea levels, droughts, devastating wildfires, and more — as our window of opportunity to take meaningful climate action gets smaller. Addressing climate change is imperative to all of our missions; the future of our communities and planet depends on it.
As California's climate crisis worsens, philanthropy is rising up and making new commitments to fund and support meaningful climate action. Today, funders are shifting toward climate mitigation and prevention models, adopting new disaster frameworks centered on racial justice, and providing grassroots organizers with the resources needed to lead the climate movement. Learn more about how funders can support a BIPOC-led climate movement, build a new green economy, and forward a resilient future for our planet.
