The Windward Fund seeks to build a more impactful environmental movement by connecting people across diverse geographies, sectors, and communities, enabling them to share expertise and resources, and providing a vehicle for effective, community-based, grassroots grant making that elevates the voices of those most impacted by environmental degradation.

As a 501(c)(3) public charity, Windward incubates and hosts initiatives which pursue bold solutions to environmental challenges from a range of angles. Windward’s platform allows donors to convene and collaborate on these issues, leveraging the work of other interrelated projects housed at the fund to strengthen their efforts and advance the field. Windward provides strategic support, guidance on best practices, expertise on operational efficiencies, and specialized compliance knowledge to hosted projects.
