ROCKEFELLER BROTHERS FUND: Sustainable Development Program



The Sustainable Development program advances global stewardship that is ecologically based, economically sound, socially just, culturally appropriate, and consistent with intergenerational equity. Human activity is causing global warming, rapid loss of biodiversity, and accelerating degradation of Earth’s life support systems. With the recognition that the impact of unchecked climate change threatens all other conservation efforts, the program focuses its grantmaking on advancing solutions to climate change. Grant Inquiries are accepted throughout the year. Prospective applicants should complete an online Grant Inquiry (also known as a letter of inquiry) to the Fund. The online Grant Inquiry is the starting point for applying for a grant from the RBF. Each inquiry is carefully reviewed by Fund staff for fit within the current funding priorities.
