The Climate Action Fund: A new approach

Across the globe, climate action led by the communities most affected by this global crisis is often underfunded and overlooked.

How nonprofits are selected for the Climate Action Fund

The GlobalGiving community is home to organizations fighting climate change at all levels. Each Earth Day, we invite YOU to join climate leaders across the globe in deciding which nonprofits will earn year-long funding through the Climate Action Fund.

Together, we can support local leaders taking on the most urgent global challenge of our time.

Meet the 2020-2021 Climate Action Fund Leaders:

Climate Action | Peru  

Ayni, Regenerative Food Forest in the Amazon

With this project the Chaikuni Institute is working to revitalize ancestral practices in rural Amazonian areas, combining permaculture design and traditional knowledge to train committed local farmers, bolster food sovereignty, biodiversity, and mitigate climate change.
Education | Ghana  

Sustainability training for marginalized Ghanaians

The world urgently needs a change of direction in the use of natural resources, otherwise climate change will lead to a dramatic change in our livelihoods in the coming decades. We are building up a training centre for sustainability to show solutions for the global problems.
Food Security | Kenya  

Long-Term Food Security for 4000 Samburus in Kenya

SFK aims to sustainably bring back water, forest and life to degraded lands in Samburu County, Kenya, supporting local populations towards food self-sufficiency. The goal is to create forests of indigenous, food-producing trees that will provide long-term food security to the Samburu tribe while simultaneously curbing climate change.
Climate Action | Peru  

1000 trees a year 1000 acres of rainforest forever

This project's goals are very simple: to plant 1000 Amazonian trees a year on deforested land in the Peruvian Amazon, and to protect the 1000 pristine acres of rainforest we own while seeking to expand this conservation area by purchasing more land.
Climate Action | Brazil  

Planting trees to save the planet!

One of the quickest, most efficient, most cost effective ways to tackle climate change is by planting trees. (IPCC, August 2019) Reforesting 900 million hectares will capture 25% of the carbon in the atmosphere, help stabilize the climate, provide clean air and protect our water resources. Let's do it!
