Our Grants

The Rockefeller Foundation has launched an ambitious whole-of-foundation strategy that is tackling the many ways a shifting climate impacts vulnerable communities. We collaborate with unlikely partners across sectors to define priorities, craft partnerships and advance strategies towards scaling people-centered climate solutions. Each step of the way, we build on what we’ve learned from our experience changing food, health, energy, and finance systems over the Foundation’s 110-year history. Consistent with our model and approach, grantmaking is one of many tools the Foundation uses to transform systems, and we do not accept unsolicited grant proposals out of respect for your time.

Use our database to explore active and past grants by commitment and grant amount within the past 5 years. This database undergoes regularly scheduled updates—please refer to the Foundation’s 990-PF documents for the complete list of all individual grants.
