About Global Greengrants Fund:

Global Greengrants Fund is a leading funder of the world’s grassroots environmental and climate justice movements. Since 1993 we have been growing our networks of activists, experts, donors, and leaders to provide these movements with the resources they need to work toward a healthy and just future.

Global Greengrants uses a variety of participatory grantmaking models to provide funding and other forms of support to grassroots groups around the world. We work with over 200 grantmaking advisors from around the world, all of whom are experts and activists, connected with the grassroots movements, issues, and challenges in the regions where they work. These advisors make grantmaking decisions as members of our organization’s regional and thematic advisory boards, of local funds that grew organically out of advisory boards in the regions where we work, and of other organizations that share our mission and values. We strive, however, for our grantmaking to be a relationship rather than a unidirectional flow of resources. Relationships built on trust and shared learning are essential to the success of our grantmaking.

Our advisors help the organizations they fund with mentoring and connections to larger movements and other institutions. By bringing back ideas and knowledge from grantees, advisors also help their colleagues and broader movements to work out new solutions to the problems that confront them.
