Join Environmental Grantmakers to connect, share and discuss impacts of COVID-19 crisis on the organizations and environmental issues we collectively serve.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to take a profound toll on our nonprofit partners, and vulnerable communities that were already at greater risk of experiencing health issues. COVID-19 has highlighted the value of the environment – our natural infrastructure-- to our health and wellbeing, and exposed the compounding impacts of a changing climate on our communities, particularly our most vulnerable communities. What can philanthropy do to ensure that the organizations tackling climate change and working to ensure a more resilient and sustainable environment have what they need to continue their work and advance their missions? What are the opportunities to seize in this moment of crisis to ensure a healthy, sustainable environment for all in New Jersey?

We invite you to be a part of this conversation where we will explore how this current public health crisis intersects with environmental challenges and the climate crisis, share what we are hearing about the needs of environmental and grassroots organizations, and discuss how philanthropy can support and advocate for a cleaner, greener, healthier and more equitable New Jersey for all.
