Supporting giant leaps toward net zero.

Canadians are increasingly alarmed about the impacts of climate change and the risks of being left behind in the global transition to a net-zero economy. Philanthropic giving can be a powerful way to help steer Canada toward success. But where to begin? 

The Clean Economy Fund is a public foundation that connects philanthropy with bold initiatives that support giant leaps toward a net-zero, climate-friendly future. 

Our goal is to make it easy for philanthropic foundations, family offices and individuals to make a big difference. We do this by providing a range of tools to help philanthropists give confidently. 

How we help.
