Together we can make a big difference.

Supporting giant leaps toward net zero.

The Clean Economy Fund is a charitable foundation that connects the philanthropic community with big and bold initiatives that support giant leaps to a strong, climate-friendly future.

Our aim is to make it simple for philanthropic funders to make a big difference.  

The Clean Economy Fund (CEF) provides three ways for funders to get engaged: CEF Community, CEF Collaboration and CEF Pooled Fund.

Building broad-based action.

The Clean Economy Fund believes that tackling climate change in Canada requires building a broad base of support and action. We especially need Canada’s economic sectors – from finance to industry to agriculture to buildings – to be champions and allies in the transition. For that reason, the CEF targets initiatives that engage and enable major economic sectors in embracing and supporting the transition to net-zero emissions.
