Our core values guide all of our actions.
They drive how we empower our grantee-partners; how we learn from climate justice movement leadership; and how we support and work with all of our stakeholders.
Inspired by our community, we’re risk-takers who believe that taking bold action is important to effect change. And it’s what our community of doers, changers, and rule-breakers count on (and expect). As a collective, we aim high, get creative, and are proactive in our approach to solving problems.

By providing grants, media capacity, and leverage, we forge new paths to connect the dots and supply the resources our grantee-partners need. This support lets them focus on creating climate change solutions that work.

We focus on climate justice solutions that directly benefit the people most affected by climate change. That’s why we center equity-rooted strategies, community benefits, and diverse leadership. And that’s why we build authentic relationships with our grantee-partners.

Joy brings everyone in. Research shows that celebration creates momentum, reinforces action, and motivates people to participate. The climate crisis is real — but we have what we need, because we have who we need to succeed.
