Our Network

CLI was created in 2019 by six generous individuals and foundations to enable donors to make an impact on the most urgent challenge of our time: an overheating planet and its consequences for people, animals and Earth itself. These foundations make their trustees and program experts available to CLI and the new funders we advise. Our Ambassadors provide guidance to CLI staff and make themselves available to peers new to this area of philanthropy. We also have an extensive network of advisors and partners available to consult with new donors and their partners.
