Overview
Several foundations have come together to create the Water Funder Initiative. Given the ongoing drought, and the likely adverse impacts climate change will have on water supply, the initiative will help funders better understand how philanthropy can play a role in California and the rest of the West to address the inadequacies of current water policy. This grant will help support this initiative.
