Our North Star:
Sequoia Climate Foundation believes in a world powered by clean energy, where all people are protected by policies that have averted the worst effects of climate change.
The impacts of climate change, from deadly weather disasters to health-related harms, disproportionately impact underserved communities and at-risk global populations, including communities of color.
For the sake of these communities and future generations, we need to act with urgency. Our grantmaking decisions are data-driven and informed by the best available science and the expertise of our partners and grantees. We are committed to building relationships and supporting bold strategies and efforts that will have both near-term impact and the highest probability of long-term success.
Our grantmaking framework considers climate change a complex systems challenge that requires complex solutions. It is built around four principles: speed, scale, cost and probability of success.
