Founded in 1993, Global Greengrants mobilizes resources for global environmental sustainability, and, more recently, social justice. We act as a bridge between donors committed to international environmental and human rights causes and expert grassroots groups in the developing world. Through our activist-led grantmaking model, we make approximately 800 grants per year in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Our approach enables more international philanthropy to conserve biological diversity, promote environmental health, support just responses to climate change, advance women�s voices, protect the rights of indigenous communities, and address the detrimental impacts of industrial development around the world.
