Event Type: 
This is a HEFN event.
January 9, 2019 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

As you plan grantmaking for 2019, do you know where other foundations are investing in environmental health and justice? New data from HEFN and EGA members gives insights into over $370 million in 2016 grants on issues like oil and gas development, toxics and safer chemicals, drinking water and air quality, environmental justice, climate change and health.   

HEFN and EGA members are invited to attend a webinar, “Follow the Money: Newly Released EGA-HEFN Data on Environmental Health & Justice Grants and Grantees,” to be held on Wednesday, Jan. 9, from 2-3 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. – noon PT.

Join the webinar for an overview of 2016 environmental health and justice grants data, as well as a demonstration of how funders can use expanded options to search the HEFN grants portal (for HEFN members) or the Environmental Grantmakers Association Tracking the Field database (for EGA members). Hear new insights about funders focusing on children and young people, communities of color, women, low-income people, or workers, all populations highly impacted by adverse environmental conditions.  Get tips on finding potential funder allies in your region or issue area.

Webinar presenters:

  • Kathy Sessions, HEFN Executive Director, on why HEFN partners with EGA in this grants tracking work and some goals for strategically using the giving data;
  • Adam Harms, EGA’s Senior Program Manager of Membership Services, presenting new TTF analysis of 2016 grants related to environmental health and justice and new search options with the expanded HEFN-EGA taxonomy;
  • Ogonnaya Dotson Newman, Program Officer, The JPB Foundation, with a funder perspective on using the Tracking the Field data in grant making; and
  • Franny Chiles, EGA’s Associate Director, providing a real-time demonstration on how to search the Tracking the Field data.
