ClimateWorks supports public policies that prevent dangerous climate change and catalyze sustainable global prosperity

Our Funders

The ClimateWorks Foundation was launched in 2008 with the support of three foundations: The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, The McKnight Foundation, and The David and Lucile Packard Foundation.

Our three founding donors made commitments that include direct support for the ClimateWorks Foundation as well as support for the organizations in the ClimateWorks Network—a global family of affiliated organizations that support public policies that prevent climate change and catalyze sustainable global prosperity.

Many of the philanthropies that support the ClimateWorks Foundation have a long history of investing in energy policy and campaigns that are consistent with ClimateWorks’ goal of enabling sustainable prosperity and preventing dangerous climate change.
