Our funding

Over 100 climate experts contributed to the gap analysis that led to Climate Catalyst being established. We became a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors in 2021, and launched our first programmes in early 2022. We rely on the generous support of philanthropic funders and to date our funding has been wholly provided from charitable grants gifted by trusts, foundations and major donors.

We thank our funders for their support to the ongoing development of Climate Catalyst and our impactful programmes.

Our progress to date has been made possible by the wisdom, support and advice of our funders, advisory board, Strategic Council, and the organisations with whom we collaborate.
