~The Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund (“the Equity Fund”) is a groundbreaking funding initiative designed to drive resources to advance climate and clean energy equity and justice. ~

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 frontline organizations across the country.

The Equity Fund is building power to stop climate change and create an equitable clean energy future through a strategic multi-state initiative that is:

  • Investing in the leadership and organizing of diverse communities (people of color, indigenous people, those most impacted by climate change);
  • Engaging voters through nonpartisan civic engagement campaigns; and
  • Winning equitable climate and clean energy policy solutions.
