To tackle big environmental health and justice problems more effectively, HEFN promotes collaboration in philanthropy.  Our members actively learn and work together around shared interests.  HEFN regularly partners with other funder groups in programming and outreach. 

Members exchange information and strategize about chemicals-related grantmaking through a Catalysts group, with a listserv, periodic calls and meetings.

HEFN has two email groups that have periodic calls and meetings: The Past Petro group supports the environmental health of communities in moving beyond the fossil fuel and petrochemical economy; and the Climate group advances health & equity in work on climate change.

Members interested in improving community conditions and in promoting environmental justice connect through a listserv, periodic calls and meetings.

HEFN collaborates with other grantmaker groups to help funders learn and connect across issues and geographies.


Foundations and donors interested in collaborating within HEFN are encouraged to consider membership.
