The Consultative Group on Biological Diversity (CGBD) is the premier professional association of foundation executives and trustees who make environmental grants. Their 60 member foundations focus on protection of the quality and diversity of life, domestically and internationally. They promote peer-to-peer learning and the sharing of knowledge among their foundation community.
CGBD is an outcomes-oriented, member-led organization devoted to a search for excellence in grantees, a constant scan of issues and solutions that are just emerging, a promotion of additional resources to be devoted to environmental protection, an holistic view that connects habitat protection with climate and energy policy with human health and environmental justice, and mindful collaboration among foundations resulting in more effective grants.
CGBD is not a grantmaking organization and does not offer assistance to grantseekers. If you are looking for a grant, they wish you the best in your securing support for your work.
A just, healthy, and sustainable future for all life on Earth supported by an effective philanthropic sector.
To support and grow a community of biodiversity grantmakers that pursues complementary and collaborative strategies.
They do this by:
Sharing knowledge and strategies
Identifying needs and emerging issues
Creating a forum for leadership.
