EGA aims to increase knowledge among members and other funders regarding environmental philanthropy. Our main tools in accomplishing this are the Enhancing the Field program, various publications, and the online Journal.

The Tracking the Field program highlights connections between environmental and global philanthropy and the relationship between inclusiveness and effective environmental philanthropy. EGA’s Green Co-op assists members in connecting to green vendors to “walk the talk” of environmental stewardship through sustainable organizational practices. The inclusive practices section provides members with resources on diversity and inclusivity to strengthen their work.

EGA's publications include in-depth research on the intersection of the environment and philanthropy. Recent reports include Tracking the Field and The Broader US Environmental Movement: Composition and Funding Insights. 

In 2010, EGA continued with our goal of becoming increasingly paperless by moving our Journal online. The online journal is an opportunity for members to write articles sharing perspectives as well as information about current pressing environmental issues and opportunities.
