Winning on Climate Change: A Critical Role for Philanthropy


Date: Tuesday, April 25
Time: 12 - 1 p.m. ET

Though the climate movement has scored an increasing number of "wins" in recent years, effective and equitable implementation of these changes is not guaranteed. Supporting implementation represents a large—and growing—opportunity for all kinds of donors to make a difference.

Join us for a webinar focused on the role funders can play in fulfilling the promise of key climate victories.

The discussion will feature two leading experts in the field: Dana Johnson, senior director of strategy and federal policy at WE ACT for Environmental Justice, and Laura García, president and CEO of Global Greengrants Fund.

You'll walk away with a deepened understanding of:
  • Philanthropy’s critical role supporting implementation of climate laws and commitments
  • Opportunities that offer funders the biggest bang for the buck
  • Steps funders can take to catalyze effective and equitable implementation
