Philanthropy in Action

May 21, 2015

After a highly competitive process, in which nearly 500 organizations applied to the foundation’s call for proposals, nine organizations have been identified to receive support through the Climate Change Solutions Fund. Grant amounts range from $50,000 to $100,000 over two years for projects taking place in four countries: Micronesia, Peru, the United States, and Zambia.

From native seed collection and documenting the stories of Arizona farmers to developing a primer for artist-driven climate activism worldwide, the nine grantees represent a diverse collection of strategies for addressing global warming, each engaging with local and regional communities in ways that leverage cultural traditions and creative practices.
