• Description

The third annual report on funding trends in climate change mitigation philanthropy covers seven years of funding data from 2015 to 2021.

Philanthropic giving to climate change mitigation increased significantly in 2021, building on the growth we saw in 2019 and 2020. Despite this momentum, climate change mitigation still accounts for a small fraction of overall philanthropic giving. Given the ever-increasing urgency of the climate crisis, it is time for philanthropy to step up its ambition — and to move more funds faster to the places that need them most.
