Energy and Climate Grant Guidelines

The Hewlett Foundation accepts unsolicited Letters of Inquiry at any time for its Energy and Climate grantmaking. Our Energy and Climate grantmaking is global, although our clean transportation grantmaking is mainly focused in China, Mexico, Brazil, and the United States. Please note that most of our investments are made through organizations like the ClimateWorks Foundation and the Energy Foundation that regrant funds, although in select instances we make direct grants to organizations.

While the Foundation's grants may be used to support public education, nonpartisan research and analysis, and permissible policy-related activities, the Foundation does not earmark its funds for IRS-defined lobbying activities, which is prohibited by federal law.
