A new report by Dorceta Taylor and Molly Blondell from the Yale University School of the Environment, examines the environmental grantmaking practices of 220 foundations that distributed more than 30,000 grants totaling $4.9 billion that were distributed over three years. It reveals disparities in environmental grantmaking that are related to the region, the size of the grantees’ revenues, the sex and race/ethnicity of the grantees’ chief executive, and the type of organization being funded. The study also found that environmental justice organizations and those focused on people of color were disadvantaged in the number of grants received and the grant dollars they were awarded.
