Why All of Philanthropy is Showing up Across Silos to Embed Racial Equity for People and Planet

Environmental grantmakers are mobilizing across the sector to resource people and planet. Now is the time to confront the active threat of climate disaster. A growing number of grantmakers are responding to the call to take action and mitigate climate harms. Whether you are committed to BIPOC, place based, or communities first action, it increasingly is necessary for funders in every issue area and geography to reshape the narrative and build new practices to adequately support frontline solutions. The entire philanthropy sector can glean lessons from leading edge environmental efforts, to meaningfully resource movements and leadership across priorities. 
Join members of the Environmental Grantmakers Association network to workshop lessons learned from funding environmental strategies through a holistic and community-centered lens. PSO colleagues and funders alike are benefitting  from applying a racial equity point of view to  philanthropy's work to transform the sector. Member insights will include the success of  trust-based practices both within foundation structures and externally. Join us to  identify  opportunities to support new leadership modalities, participatory and hybrid experiments and our best practices on moving entire systems towards a sustainable future.
