In 2021, The Solutions Project disrupted the philanthropic and media sector to focus on climate justice and solidarity. With big investments from our philanthropic partners, we scaled and expanded our support of grassroots organizations to build solutions, funding, and influence for communities most affected by the climate crisis.
In 2021, we:
- Scaled our impact by increasing grants by more than five-fold, from two million to nearly $11.5 million
- Tripled the number of grantees we support, 193 organizations across 26 states and territories, with 82% of it to People of Color-led organizations
- Co-created three funds to center and strengthen frontline leadership and innovations: Justice40 Accelerator, Fund for Frontline Power, and Communicating Our Power
- Shifted the national dialogue towards equity by reaching over 25 million people with climate justice solutions stories told by our grantees
As a result, in 2022, we were named one of the world’s most innovative companies by Fast Company and won two Anthem Awards for brand and strategy.
Gloria Walton, CEO & President of The Solutions Project, said,
“This is only the beginning. . . It’s time to join forces and be in solidarity as we take collective action on our equity commitments. This moment requires audacious leadership, audacious giving, and audacious impact.
Our grantees and their respective communities are the ones accelerating a just transition to a regenerative economy that works for all of us. Imagine what will come when they have the resources to thrive and the spotlight to show the world what is possible.”
Help us resource grassroots communities like we never have before. Will you join us?
