Supporting Women Environmental Leaders
At Rachel’s Network, we know that elevating women of color results in a healthier, safer, and more just world, and we are committed to investing in them. That’s why we created the Catalyst Award, new in 2019.
Fighting the Border Wall
Rachel’s Network joined the Texas Civil Rights Project and the Sierra Club to draw the public’s attention to the landscapes and communities threatened by border walls, strengthen the coalition fighting these projects, and resist further construction in the courts.
Rachel’s Network today announced new funding for the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Texas Civil Rights Project (TCRP) to amplify the voices of those at the border and oppose the construction of the US-Mexico border wall.
Acknowledging the urgency of addressing climate change, the Rachel’s Network Finance Committee approved a plan to move the organization’s reserve fund to a 100% fossil free portfolio focused on environmental solutions.
In 2018, our co-funding program granted more than ever before, funding projects addressing pesticide overuse, climate change, sustainable agriculture, and borderlands conservation. This work earned us two awards: the Leadership Award from Philanthropy Women and Environmental Funder of the Year from Inside Philanthropy. Read our 2018 Annual Report to learn more.
