Report: Climate Change & Social Change: How funders can act on both
The independence and financial freedom that foundations have presents an incredible opportunity for our sector to take a leadership role in tackling the climate crisis. The environmental emergency poses a threat to the communities we exist to serve – but addressing it can provide many co-benefits that will not only protect against future harm, but also improve lives in the here and now.
Throughout this report, you will hear stories of the disproportionate impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable. You will also hear from a number of Foundation CEOs on how and why they are responding to the climate emergency, as well as the linkages they see with their core work. Featuring practical ideas for how to use your grant giving, investments and convening power to address climate change today, even if it’s not your organisation’s core purpose, this report is a must-read for any funder that wants to do more to address the climate emergency and wants to know where to start.
