Making a big difference, together.

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.

The Clean Economy Fund offers a variety of tools to foundations, family offices and individuals looking to support Canada’s transition to a net-zero, climate-friendly future.

  • Grant administration and due diligence
  • Collaborative granting opportunities
  • Issue-based funds
