The Founders Pledge Climate Change Fund supports highly impactful, evidence-based solutions to the “triple challenge” of carbon emissions, air pollution, and energy poverty.
The Founders Pledge Climate Change Fund aims to sustainably reach net-zero emissions globally.
Current levels of emissions are contributing to millions of deaths annually from air pollution and causing irrevocable damage to our planet. In addition, millions worldwide do not have access to modern energy technology, severely hampering development goals.
By pooling contributions, the Fund enables individual donors to contribute to organisations that require a large minimum donation or have short windows of opportunity for impact, and streamlines the administrative process for both donors and grantees.
Taking a holistic approach that recognises the global and overlapping nature of climate-related challenges, Founders Pledge identifies the most cost-effective donation opportunities so that time-constrained donors can be confident that their donations are truly making a difference.

We previously included the Climate Change Fund on our list of recommendations because it is managed by the impact-focused evaluator Founders Pledge. We’ve since updated our recommendations to reflect only funds managed by grantmakers we’ve looked into as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations; while we expect to soon look into Founders Pledge as part of this more in-depth evaluator research, we haven’t yet. As such, we don't currently include this fund as one of our recommended programs but you can still donate to it via our donation platform.
