The goal of the Foundation’s Climate and Clean Energy program is to protect people and the planet from the worst impacts of climate change by cutting pollution and accelerating the transition to an equitable, clean energy future. We aim to help make energy clean, affordable, safe, and reliable for all.
The program’s grantmaking supports organizations and coalitions that help advance and implement policies to spur large-scale progress curbing pollution, and to ensure that a clean energy future is a just and prosperous one for overburdened and vulnerable communities. We do that by funding efforts primarily in the United States, focused on four strategic areas: advancing climate policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; transforming the energy sectors that are the primary source of pollution; cutting the most potent pollutants, such as methane; and seizing time-sensitive opportunities to achieve large-scale emission reductions.
The program’s grantee partners help advance equitable, clean energy policy quickly, boldly, and inclusively. For example, grantees design and advocate for effective policies, build coalitions to foster policy improvements, communicate the urgency to take action on climate change and the benefits of clean energy, and empower leaders to be bold and innovative.
The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
