Strategic grants to catalyze real-world results

ClimateWorks manages a portfolio of grants that support organizations and projects working to mitigate climate change. Our grantmaking is guided by portfolio priorities and aligned with our values. ClimateWorks supports regionally based programs in China, Indonesia, Europe, Latin America, and the United States, as well as global and transnational initiatives.

We work collaboratively with other foundations that share our commitment to mitigating climate change, at scale. We allocate funds strategically in a way that supports portfolio goals and initiatives.

We are a strategic grantmaker, committed to evaluating our work and the work of our partners, learning from our successes and failures, and improving how we work. With a global perspective, we work with partners to understand context and trends, learn from experience, and reveal opportunities for impact. In the process, we contribute to more strategic, efficient, and effective climate philanthropy.

ClimateWorks’ grantmaking includes core support and project support grants.

Core support

ClimateWorks collaborates with and provides core support grants to a global network of regional partners whose missions align with ours. These organizations play a central role in developing portfolios of philanthropic investments designed to achieve large-scale greenhouse gas emissions reductions in the regions and countries where they operate. Working with a host of local grantees, regional partners design and lead geographically based strategies and fund fine-grained grant portfolios.

Project support

ClimateWorks supports mature, emerging, and experimental opportunities to curb climate change. Project grants fund global, regional, and transnational strategies that ClimateWorks develops, implements, and monitors. Most of our project support grants prioritize global and transnational opportunities, and we work closely with our foundation partners to invest in potentially game-changing opportunities. Project grants also enable rapid response to emerging opportunities and challenges in the field. We also make grants on behalf of programs and initiatives we host.

Between 2008 and 2014, ClimateWorks’ grantmaking was directed predominately to a global network of regional partners and technical institutions that provided sector-specific and policy expertise. Through this support, ClimateWorks injected unprecedented philanthropic capital into the climate and clean energy field. In total, during our first six years, ClimateWorks awarded 868 grants to 227 grantees, totaling $799,152,683. ClimateWorks’ annual reports include more information about our grantmaking history.

During this period, the strategies that ClimateWorks supported — along with countless other funders and grantees — helped bring about significant policy change in the regions and sectors with the greatest greenhouse gas emissions. In total, we estimate that these associated policy outcomes have the potential to reduce approximately 5.6 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide per year by 2020 — more than the annual emissions of 1,400 coal-fired power plants. These results, while not nearly enough to put the world on a 2°C pathway, show that there is momentum for change and opportunities for philanthropy to make a difference in the fight against climate change.

How does ClimateWorks determine its funding priorities?
ClimateWorks determines its funding priorities by assessing the technical potential of a program or initiative to achieve greenhouse gas abatement, evaluating the political, social, and economic context, and coordinating with funding and other partners. Funding priorities are structured around six specialized portfolios — Clean Power, Oil, Energy Efficiency, Forests and Land Use, Non-CO₂ Mitigation, and Cross-Cutting Strategies — which work both individually and collectively to target opportunities in areas that demonstrate the biggest potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
In what geographic areas does ClimateWorks make grants?
ClimateWorks makes grants to organizations and initiatives in the regions that hold the highest potential for greenhouse gas abatement: China, Indonesia, the European Union, Latin America, and the United States. ClimateWorks also funds global and transnational strategies, such as initiatives that support international climate policies, reduce emissions from aircraft and marine vessels, address fluorinated gases (F-gases) globally, and increase sustainable finance.
How does ClimateWorks evaluate if its grants are making a difference?
ClimateWorks follows the principles of strategic philanthropy. We set goals for our programs and work with partners in pursuit of these goals, collaborating with them to achieve results on a scale commensurate with the size of the problem. To evaluate the impact of our grantmaking, ClimateWorks engages in structured monitoring, evaluation, and learning. We use insights from these efforts to adjust and adapt to evolving conditions in the field. In select cases, we commission third party evaluations that inform decisions on strategy and implementation.
Where do ClimateWorks' grantmaking funds come from?
ClimateWorks' grantmaking funds come from foundation partners that invest in our mission and programs. To these partners, we offer insights, strategic analysis of opportunities, grantmaking capacity, and the ability to collaborate with other funders and leverage funds at scale. We are not an endowed foundation.
Does ClimateWorks accept unsolicited proposals?
ClimateWorks does not accept unsolicited proposals. We work with partners to identify organizations and initiatives that align with our strategic priorities. This collaborative approach leverages a global network of organizations that work with us to develop insights, design strategies, and implement programs. We believe that this strategic, partnership-driven approach is effective in achieving real-world results.
