Rockefeller Family Fund


: Environment


The Fund was created by Martha, John, Laurance, Nelson, and David Rockefeller in 1967. The Fund has worked on the cutting edge of advocacy in areas such as environmental protection, advancing the economic rights of women, and helping citizens hold public and private institutions accountable for their actions. Environmental grants focus primarily on climate change. The Fund emphasizes public education on the risks of global warming and implementation of sound solutions. Grants to advance the economic rights of women seeks to improve the quality of life for working women and their families in two ways: by advancing economic policy solutions that have tangible impacts on women and their families' lives and by engaging a diverse, multiracial coalition of women to advocate for these policy solutions, building women's power, and advancing the national narrative around economic equity. The Fund's Democracy grants encourages the active participation of citizens in government, seeks to make government and private institutions more accountable and responsive, and supports efforts to ensure that individuals rights and liberties under the Constitution are protected. Additional information and application instructions can be found on the Web site.
