About the fund

Through Bloomberg Philanthropies’ new Youth Climate Action Fund, we’ll receive $50,000 USD to distribute as microgrants ($1,000 to $5,000) to fund youth-led climate initiatives. We’ll administer this grant in partnership with ClimateActionWR and Greenhouse.

From tree-planting or public education campaigns to recycling or waste reduction initiatives to climate change mitigation planning or preparedness programs, efforts funded by the new Youth Climate Action Fund will advance community goals like meeting decarbonization commitments or reducing consumption-based emissions.
