The Environmental Funders Network (EFN) is an informal network of trusts, foundations and individuals making grants on environmental and conservation issues. Our mission is to increase the overall level of financial support for environmental causes and to help environmental philanthropy to be as effective as it can be.
EFN periodically publishes reports to inspire and inform donors about environmental philanthropy. Our latest, A Splendid Torch: Interviews with Environmental Funders, is now available.
We invite you to spend time in the company of ten influential donors who have devoted their money, time, skills and passion to tackling some of the most urgent issues we face. Learn about their strategies for ensuring that their giving is as effective as it can be and find out what drives them.
Since it was launched, more than 170 funding organisations have taken part in EFN’s meetings and subscribed to our monthly emails. Some of these organisations are listed under Who’s Involved.
