About this grant

Founded in 1987, the Consultative Group on Biological Diversity is a professional association of foundation executives and trustees who make environmental grants in the United States and abroad. The grantee facilitates collaboration among foundations that are interested in ecological biodiversity. With prior Mott support, the grantee hosted meetings of environmental grantmakers, provided regular newsletters and updates, offered individualized consultations to members, and helped foundations respond to emerging issues. With this general purpose grant renewal, the grantee will continue these activities, expand its international programs, and strengthen support for funders working to advance climate change solutions.
