Much Alarm, Less Action​​​: Foundations & Climate Change
The Center for Effective Philanthropy
Despite the urgency of climate change and the narrowing window for action, philanthropic funding to address climate change remains very limited. Total philanthropic giving by foundations and individuals focused on climate change mitigation represents less than two percent of total global philanthropic giving, according to the ClimateWorks Foundation. While there is some evidence of increased momentum in recent years, more action will be needed to match the scale of the climate crisis.

Funding For Intersectional Organizing: A Call To Action For Human Rights Philanthropy
Human Rights Funders Network
HRFN’s new report examines the state of global human rights funding across issues and populations to explore where support for intersectionality may truly exist. The report is the first comprehensive and global analysis of when and if grants to support human rights reach beyond a single issue or community. The findings show that a resoundingly small fraction of human rights funding supports activism that cuts across multiple communities or issues. Just 18% of human rights grants name two populations, and less than 5% support three or more.

The Threat of Crisis Pregnancy Centers to the Future Of Abortion Access
National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy
This new report shows that crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) are backed by billions of dollars and institutional ties to larger groups that provide financial security and significant organizational infrastructure. The report points out that dozens of legitimate health facilities and nonprofits would be better recipients of direct resources to support pregnant people.
