Donor Power: The Influence of Climate Philanthropy
Large, established foundations such as Hewlett–Packard and Bloomberg have been some of the earliest funders addressing climate change. But grantmakers and grantseekers are not always fans of their policy-centric and top-down approaches. Meanwhile, a new wave of midsize foundations are seeding policies and research institutions that are shaping the future of the climate movement.
Are leaner foundations more attuned to the deep systematic changes needed to get to the roots of the climate crisis? What’s next for organizations looking to support bold action?
Join us for a special two-part discussion on the role and future of climate philanthropy, featuring Charlotte Pera, Farhad Ebrahimi, Sarah Shanley Hope, Joe Speicher and Tate Williams.
