Who We Are
With climate change accelerating, the Climate Justice Resilience Fund was created to help women, youth, and indigenous peoples adapt and build resilience. We believe that lasting climate resilience must start with those communities being affected. By supporting "bottom-up," community-led approaches, and providing tools for affected people to assert their rights, we help front line communities reduce risks, manage shocks, rebound, and continue charting a path to sustainable development.
The Climate Justice Resilience Fund was created through a generous $20 million grant from the Oak Foundation. It is a project of New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity registered in the United States. The CJRF welcomes additional funding partners with aligned interests, and is developing a partnership strategy to grow the size of the fund and its impact.
