Taking climate philanthropy to the next level
In order to effectively implement and pursue our new strategic goals (which includes SDG13), FCF’s GM recently completed Active Philanthropy’s 8-week “Climate & Philanthropy Course”. Active Philanthropy supports philanthropists and social investors who want to make a real difference in countering the harmful effects of climate change: https://www.activephilanthropy.org/learning-journey
The course works as a pathfinder and offers expertise and expeditions to learn about the climate crisis, and opportunities for effective climate philanthropy. It is for anyone who wants to take an active role in integrating climate change into their foundation’s work. It explores the fundamentals of climate change, the impacts of the crisis on your philanthropic work, and opportunities to drive change in three main areas; your operations, your grantmaking and your investments.
A key takeaway amongst the vast in-depth knowledge gained, is the interactive tool offering almost 200 solutions for funders to support as they seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. You can start your climate action journey today!
