The climate crisis touches every aspect of human life.

Climate change is a global emergency and the greatest challenge of our time. It is not a singular issue but a threat multiplier that affects every aspect of our lives: the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the communities we call home and the plants and animals that make up our ecosystems.

According to the world’s leading scientists, we have 11 years to make critical changes to avoid the very worst impacts of an overheating planet. Amplified, collective, global action can help combat the existential threat of climate change. Today, donors can seize the opportunity to be a key lever to change the course of history.

That’s why in 2019, six individuals and foundations created the Climate Leadership Initiative (CLI) to advise new donors seeking to make impactful philanthropic investments to help solve the climate crisis.
