The Environmental Giving Pledge

Tagged in: Climate and energy, National

We are a small, nimble foundation that devotes most of our giving to addressing climate change.

Given the urgency of the issue, we are committed to spending down our corpus within 5-10 years.

We only have a short window left to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. The idea of holding onto a corpus for the long term isn’t valid when faced with an existential crisis.

Our foundation complements its giving with in-kind support including business mentoring, strategic advice and assistance with proposals for further funding.

That is why we support the AEGN’s Environmental Giving Pledge to reach $50 million in five years.
