The Health & Environment Funders Network (HEFN) is a national membership network of over 60 foundations, donors, and philanthropic advisors interested in improving health, environmental, and equity outcomes. Our mission is to mobilize philanthropy around solutions for environmental health and justice issues. HEFN’s close-knit community invests over $600 million a year to build the power of the environmental health and justice movement, prioritizing support for affected communities and diverse organizations, at the grassroots, across the United States, and globally.
HEFN offers programming to our members through multiple channels, including working groups specific to funding issue areas, learning communities specific to areas of philanthropic practice, and an annual meeting. We continually iterate our program structure to be in service of our members’ needs. HEFN staff’s day-to-day work is to create experiences and resources that support funder learning, networking, and collaboration, enabling our members to make collective and better-informed impact. We are valued by our members for being nimble and responsive to emerging issues; for our caring and supportive environment; and for embracing equity and belonging.
We are BIPOC woman-led, majority BIPOC staffed and queer-trans embracing. Our small but mighty team of four works remotely and collaborates virtually from across the country. As a nonprofit, HEFN operates through a Joint Plan of Work with Virginia Organizing, a 501c(3) organization that accepts and manages funds on our behalf. Our work is guided by a national Steering Committee, which currently consists of eight leaders from HEFN’s membership.
