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, as well as other leading climate donors, make their trustees and program experts available to CLI and the new funders we advise. We also have an extensive network of advisors beyond our founding funders, all available to consult with new donors and their partners.
