About Us

Our Vision

The Chesapeake Bay Funders Network envisions an environmental movement that is rooted in diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice that strives to ensure all residents in the region enjoy and benefit from clean water, clean air, and open space in their community.

Our Mission

In pursuit of this vision the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network builds and mobilizes a network of grant-makers to listen, share and develop collaborative strategies that shift social, economic, and political systems toward a healthy, natural environment and just, equitable communities.

Our Work

The Network upholds the following guiding principles in our work:

  • Elevate the voices of those most impacted by economic and policy forces to ensure lasting and equitable outcomes for people and the environment.
  • Identify and work to address the racism and power structures that have perpetuated disproportionate environmental impacts on communities of color
  • Deepen funder knowledge on scientific, political, and social dimensions of key systems influencing our region’s environment to surface the needs and opportunities that call for a coordinated action
  • Pool funds and align grant-making for scaled, deeper, and longer-term impact
  • Foster cross-sector partnerships, civic engagement, and community leadership
  • Include practitioners in the work to learn, analyze, and develop strategies for the region
  • Cultivate trust, transparency, and accountability among the grantmaking community
