Those We Serve

EGA serves a broad swath of the environmental funding community. We are a growing, diverse, international organization comprising foundations, giving programs, and major individual donors concerned with protecting the environment. Our membership spans those large and small, in terms of giving level and staff size, and includes public, community, family, and corporate foundations. EGA members gave more than $1 billion to a variety of environmental issues domestically and internationally in 2012. This represented 38% of the U.S. environmental philanthropic community.

What unites EGA members is a commitment to a world with healthy, equitable, and sustainable ecosystems, communities, and economies.

Entities that grant funds but do not act primarily as grant-making institutions are not eligible for membership.
