The Climate Champions is a program of the Climate Emergency Collaboration Group, a fiscally sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. This grant will sustain the Climate Champions as they scale up over the next two years and help to continue the Climate Champions work on multiple global campaigns: Race to Zero, Race to Resilience, and the Glasgow Finance Alliance for Net Zero. The funds will help to raise ambition and accelerate action among non-state actors (businesses, investors, cities, regions, civil society, etc.), which will in turn encourage countries to accelerate change in order to meet the goals of the Paris agreement.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Dignity.us
Dignity.us is a bipartisan citizens’ initiative to address hate-fueled violence in America, starting by listening across all states, territories, and tribal lands for insights and ideas about the challenge and path forward. They seek input from Americans of every region, race, faith, ethnicity, and ideology – spanning those who have suffered the effects of this violence; researchers and experts who have studied the problem; social innovators and advocates leading the way with bold and tested ideas; philanthropists committed to allocating resources to the implementation and scaling of those ideas; and those who have left groups affiliated with hatred and violence and become a part of the solution. They will turn their findings into a countrywide response that greatly expands the scale of effective community-based innovations — and helps to mobilize and sustain a united front that transcends differences.
