About Us

Our mission is to rapidly and exponentially increase climate philanthropy by connecting donors with peers, experts and high-impact solutions that restore our planet. 

Climate change affects every aspect of our lives and threatens to undermine progress on economic, social and environmental issues. And yet, climate represents a fraction of philanthropic giving. CLI is singularly focused on increasing climate philanthropy by making it easier for donors to tap into a network of peers, organizations and promising solutions.

We balance both rigor and urgency in our work to quickly and nimbly engage donors with tailored giving opportunities that cross-cut issues such as health, poverty, food and water, economic justice and biodiversity. We mobilize the ingenuity, passion and generosity of philanthropists to solve the most profound challenge of our time.

Because our staff, overhead and operations are fully funded, we do not fundraise for our work, charge for our services or make our own grants. This model frees us to advise donors and connect them directly to the global network of effective, trusted partners leading the way. 

How We Work

CLI is both an advisory service for new climate donors and strategic support for experienced donors to enlist their peers. We engage donors by:

Connecting donors to peers, experts and solutions

Convening donor experiences and thought-leader events with meaningful follow-up opportunities

Curating impactful and “honestly-brokered” giving opportunities

We’re Growing

CLI is filling new positions on our team as we advance the most promising solutions to the climate crisis.
