Impact on Earth

Our grantees, who are Black, Indigenous, women, and people of color, are at the forefront of organizing efforts for climate and environmental justice. We are committed to expanding the resources to support this work. By investing in climate and environmental efforts led by those most directly impacted, we have an opportunity to think through creative and collective solutions.
