Funding Climate Action: A Grassroots Philanthropy Workshop
October 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
While there is growing recognition that immediate and
significant action is needed respond to climate change, only
2 percent of global philanthropy dollars fund climate
change projects. Further, most of this money comes from
large foundations and goes to large scale climate mitigation
projects that focus on reducing overall greenhouse gas
emissions. These projects are important, but they do little to
help communities currently suffering the effects of changing
Small funders are ideally positioned to fund climate adaption
—that is, projects that help communities prepare for the
impacts of climate change. But what kinds of grassroots
climate projects are most effective? And how can small
funders best target their funds to address climate action?
Join Pangea Giving as we explore these questions in a
workshop on grassroots climate philanthropy. The event will
include a presentation from Pangea Giving intern Elan Wong,
who spent the summer researching the landscape of
climate-focused philanthropy, and a roundtable discussion
on how small funders can best support climate action
