Gender and Climate Justice Funding Initiative

Washington DC, DC
Joined in April 2019

About Us

A new funding initiative is being formed, with a vision of achieving a thriving and equitable world where the root causes of climate change have been eradicated, leading to fulfillment and self-determination for all and a healthy planet. The Fund’s mission is to elevate investment in climate justice leadership – primarily amongst Black women, Indigenous women, women of color, youth, and others engaged on the frontlines – to move equitable solutions at the speed and scale needed to attain a just and habitable world.

This Fund initially aims to raise and distribute $10 million a year in grants in support of work at the nexus of climate justice, gender justice, and racial justice in the United States, with a strong focus on the southeast. This initiative will contribute to efforts to dramatically cut US global warming pollution by 2030, while also building resilient communities. The Fund will link with global women and climate networks. The Fund will launch in the fall of 2019.
