About the Organization

ClimateWorks Foundation is a global organization committed to our mission: to end the climate crisis by amplifying the power of philanthropy. Since our founding in 2008, we have awarded over $1.3 billion in grants to more than 600 organizations advancing climate solutions around the world. We helped grow the field of climate philanthropy to where it stands today, establishing infrastructure, global networks, and momentum for continued growth. Through our Global Programs and Services, we equip philanthropy with global knowledge, networks, and solutions to drive climate progress.

Scaling solutions: Our collaborative Global Programs — focused on solution areas including carbon dioxide removal, cooling, industry, transportation, governance and diplomacy, and more — produce results that are bending the greenhouse gas emissions curve. From the U.S. to Europe, China, Brazil, and beyond, we collaborate with a diverse community of funders, NGOs, and climate leaders to accelerate just and equitable climate solutions.
Guiding and supporting funders: Our Global Services provide funders with comprehensive resources to assess, build, evolve, and execute high-impact climate-giving strategies. Our Global Intelligence service equips funders and the climate community with climate insights to pinpoint opportunities for impact and philanthropic insights to help identify investment priorities. We facilitate Global Collaborations that enable funders to increase individual and collective impact. Our Global Grantmaking services enable funders to invest in climate solutions around the world.
Fostering collaboration, exploration, and growth: Our collaborative approach and commitment to learning ensures that we continuously explore innovative ideas and emerging opportunities — all with the aim of scaling philanthropy-supported initiatives to help end the climate crisis.

As experts in climate science, public policy, economic and social analysis, and strategic philanthropy, ClimateWorks’ staff understands the multi-faceted challenges and opportunities of climate change. We are researchers, strategists, collaborators, and grantmakers who care passionately about our mission. For more information, please visit

Global Intelligence and Climate Philanthropy

ClimateWorks’ Global Intelligence identifies high-impact opportunities for philanthropy to enable deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. By applying our experience, expertise, and analysis to unique datasets on climate and philanthropy, we help individuals and organizations work with the speed and scale that the climate crisis requires. We work alongside a global network of funders, grantees, researchers, and other partners to build unique datasets that shed light on how philanthropy can have the greatest possible impact on alleviating the climate crisis.

ClimateWorks’ Global Intelligence supports funders at every stage of their climate giving journey, from learning about the basics, to identifying opportunities, taking decisive action, and tracking progress. In addition to supporting climate funders, Global Intelligence also supports researchers and climate-focused NGO networks to access cutting-edge data and tools, convene stakeholders, generate insights to serve the climate community, and take action.
