When we support our environment, we support the people that live here.

The Foundation’s environmental programs envision a region with equitable climate adaptation and mitigation projects that center Black, Indigenous, people of color, and other people most impacted by climate change. We wish to see vibrant and climate-resilient neighborhoods. We work to establish strong partnerships between government, business, and non-profits that effectively center those most impacted by planning decisions. We aim to ensure long-term funding from various sources is allocated with a racial equity lens and flowing towards climate adaptation and mitigation.

To achieve this vision, we focus on four priority environmental program areas: 

  • Building the Movement to Live Better with Water
  • Thriving Coastal Communities 
  • Community-Led Climate Solutions 
  • Equitable and Sustainable Transportation Options
