The Funders Network (TFN) is thrilled to share a new funder toolkit — focused on climate, health and equity — that aims to help accelerate investments, advance strategy and expand partnerships.

As the impacts of climate change accelerate in communities across the country, funders in every sector face immense needs for investment — especially in communities that are disproportionately impacted. The challenges are profound. But so is a historic opportunity to embed a culture of health, eliminate longstanding inequities, improve the environment, and reshape our communities around the needs of people.

Exciting efforts are emerging across the country. But meeting this moment will require philanthropy to work ambitiously, strategically, at scale and across sectors.

To support this, eight philanthropy-serving organizations worked together to create  Investing at the Frontlines: A Funder Toolkit on Climate, Health, and Equity. The aim is to help philanthropy accelerate investments, advance strategy and expand cross-cutting partnerships, especially by supporting highly impacted communities and populations in their own solutions-focused work.

Whether getting started in this space or ramping up existing efforts, funders can use the toolkit to:
