New Research Report on Foundations & Climate Change!

The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) recently released new research that reveals that foundation leaders overwhelmingly see climate change as an urgent problem and believe that foundations could be doing more to address the issue. Despite these leaders’ alarm, however, foundation efforts to address climate change are relatively limited, and non-climate funders tend to see the issue as outside the scope of their mission. Find the CEP report, “Much Alarm, Less Action: Foundations & Climate Change” here to learn more.
