Environmental philanthropy looks very different today than it did just ten years ago. The presence of grassroots movements is expanding. New sources of funding and donors are emerging and mega-gifts to environmental philanthropy are on the rise. More organizations than ever before are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion practices.
Join us to hear Mike Brune of the Sierra Club, Gladys Limon of the California Environmental Justice Alliance, and Sudha Nandagopal of Social Venture Partners International share their perspectives on trends and tensions in environmental philanthropy. The session will be facilitated by Katlyn Torgerson and Marcos Santiago of CCS Fundraising. We’ll explore how racial equity issues are being addressed by environmental organizations large and small, how philanthropic support for grassroots organizations is increasing and what that means for larger organizations, and how new sources of funding are influencing environmental philanthropy.
