Description

Founded in 2016, The Equity Fund is already partnering with organizations in 13 states (Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia), and will expand its reach to additional states in the coming years.

Grassroots groups advocating for and organizing people hard hit by climate change – communities of color, Indigenous, working class and rural communities – often lack resources, staffing, and access to develop relationships with foundation funders and major donors. Yet, they are accomplishing critical work to build the collective power of communities most hurt by climate change and the use of dirty fossil fuels resulting in health problems, job losses, and displacement.

The Equity Fund is a conduit for foundations and donors to partner and support these grassroots organizations across the country. Because of their expertise and deep relationships with community-led groups working at the intersection of climate change, racial justice, and economic equity, they can identify and nurture local grantee partners that have large-scale bases of members and track records of winning policy victories in their cities and states. They share lessons learned from their grantee partners so that foundations and donors can better understand how grassroots groups are building power to advance climate solutions and then develop and coordinate funding strategies that will have the greatest results.

Overview 

The Climate + Clean Energy Equity Fund (The Equity Fund) is building the multi-state infrastructure and community power needed to end climate change and to create an equitable clean energy future. The Equity Fund is strategically building power by:

  • Investing in the leadership and organizing of diverse communities (Black, Latinx, AAPI, Indigenous people, and communities bearing the brunt of climate change);

  • Engaging voters in these communities through nonpartisan civic engagement campaigns; and

  • Winning climate and clean energy policy solutions that reflect the priorities of communities and advance racial, economic, and environmental justice.

The Equity Fund is seeking nominations and applications for the newly created position of Director of Human Resources.

This year, the Equity Fund made the strategic decision to start the process of spinning out of its fiscal sponsorship at New Venture Fund to establish a new, independent institution that can meet the needs of its growing and dynamic ecosystem of grassroots organizations and their collective impact. The person holding this position will also work for The Climate Equity Action Fund, which is spinning out of its fiscal sponsorship with the Sixteen Thirty Fund.

The Climate Equity Action Fund is a coordinated project in the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)(4) organization, under a resource sharing agreement between the New Venture Fund and Sixteen Thirty Fund. The responsibilities will be overseen by the Sixteen Thirty Fund, but the activities of The Climate Equity Action Fund may include funding grassroots organizations to build political power and support partisan candidate work.

Location: Los Angeles, CA; Oakland, CA; or Washington DC (Preference for Washington DC)
