Together, we can solve the climate crisis.
Our optimism is fueled by groundbreaking science, the power of community-led action, and the game-changing potential of climate philanthropy across One Earth's three pillars of action.
We help donors and changemakers scale their collective impact.
It’s time to radically increase climate philanthropy. Less than 2% of all charitable giving goes to nonprofits working to solve the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change. One Earth is working with an array of partners to triple the volume of giving, driving dollars to critically underfunded projects on every continent. Through our Project Marketplace, individuals and companies can directly support vetted climate solutions, helping to create a world where all people and nature thrive together.

Our unique approach: Philanthro-activism
We believe that everyone, everywhere, can be a climate philanthropist. Whether you are a volunteer, a small-dollar donor, or a major benefactor, we all have a pivotal role to play in pushing for solutions that can be implemented today, supporting individuals and communities working to solve the climate crisis. Through One Earth’s three programs — Science, Philanthropy, and Media — we directly support the climate heroes who drive change where it’s needed most.
