Climate Change Fund

Climate Fund

This Fund is used to make grants to organisations working to tackle climate change. This includes those working on advancing both technological and natural solutions, as well as advocacy for policy that supports these solutions on a large scale. The Fund managers are responsible for identifying organisations that are able to effect real change in a cost-effective way.

History and Balance

The Climate Change Fund is a brand new project from Founders Pledge. This section will be updated as it progresses. We will be making our first grants in January 2021.
