WS6a_FundingEnvironmentalPhilanthropy_Williams Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Harriet Williams Environmental Funders Network JMG Foundation
  • 2.  
  • 3. Green grantmakers: Who are we?
    • Small part of the total philanthropic pie
    • 2% - 20% of environmental group income
    • Fast, flexible, innovative and risk-taking (in theory)
    • Clumpy, conservative (in practice)
  • 4. What issues do green grantmakers fund?
    • Preference for issue ‘silos’ over systemic approach
    • Place-based conservation takes c. 36% of spend
    • Much less for systemic drivers
    • 2.3% for climate, 3.3% for waste, 1.3% for transport, 4.1% built environment…
  • 5. What approaches do green grantmakers fund?
    • Preference for ‘on-the-ground’ project work
    • 24% for practical conservation, 20% for research, 15% service delivery
    • Less money for work aimed at systemic change
    • 14% for advocacy and campaigning, 7% for community, 2% for media
  • 6. Future of the grants market
    • Already significant proportion of funders (but not necessarily of total grants) working on systemic approaches
    • Collaboration through issue-based ‘affinity groups’
    • More analysis, consultancy and professionalisation of grants strategy
    • Linkages with development, health, social justice, education agendas – more money for climate and SCP?
  • 7. What are priorities for SCP grantmaking?
    • As identified by Funders Workgroup on SCP:
    • 1) Increase consumer awareness and choice
    • 2) Promote innovative policies
    • 3) Accelerate demand for green products
    • 4) Demand corporate accountability
    • 5) Encourage sustainable business practices
