The report is the first of its kind. It is a high-level ‘how to’ guide for donors that explains:
The problems: Although climate change is grabbing headlines, there are other pressing issues: from deforestation to biodiversity to collapsing fish stocks—these issues demand attention too.
Charities’ solutions: Solutions are not only in the gift of government and businesses. Charities play a vital role in tackling environment problems—as pioneers, leaders, managers and guardians they have achieved remarkable successes. Charities are uniquely placed to make a difference, but they are hampered by too little funding.
Practical steps for donors: From providing long-term funding to effective charities to sharing experience of what works, Green philanthropy outlines the main priorities for donors.
Green philanthropy equips donors with the information they need to make a difference. It is relevant both to experienced philanthropists in this area and those who have not considered supporting environment charities before.
