There are as many opportunities to make great investments in this field as there are communities and ecosystems.
The environmental health field is broad, spanning many sectors of society, from science to politics to business. It is deep, ranging from neighborhood projects to global campaigns.
It is varied, mobilizing people and their social assets through community organizing, policy advocacy, market reforms, media and communications, education, and other social change efforts.
Grantmaking "where environment meets health" is happening within and across many other fields, including health, environment, smart growth and livable communities, sustainable agriculture, reproductive health and justice, and others.
Through HEFN and our funder group partners, there are many opportunities to find your grantmaking niche and be part of a lively learning-and-collaboration community.
