Climate Solutions & Equity Grant
Georgia Funders Are Joining Together to Advance Climate Solutions that Prioritize Equity
Climate change is impacting Georgia, and BIPOC and low-income communities bear a disproportionate burden. From the health impacts of extreme heat to property loss associated with flooding, these communities are often on the frontline of climate impacts.
Now is the time for solutions.
The Drawdown Georgia Climate Solutions & Equity Grant is an exciting new grant opportunity to support organizations working to grow climate solutions in BIPOC and low-income communities in our state.
Who’s Behind the Effort:
Five foundation partners are teaming up to support this inaugural effort:
- The Kendeda Fund
- The NextGen Committee of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation
- The R. Howard Dobbs, Jr. Foundation and its next gen program, the Dobbs Fund
- The Sapelo Foundation
- The Wilbur & Hilda Glenn Family Foundation
The foundation partners plan to award at least four, two-year grants of up to $100,000 per year in 2023-2024. Applications will open in Fall 2022.
Additional details about the grant and information about how to apply will be announced soon.
