Building Momentum to Win

“All of the above” has become a popular sound bite when it comes to U.S. energy policy. It includes expanding domestic fossil fuel energy sources – like hydraulically fractured natural gas and strip-mined coal – while making cars go further on a gallon of gas.

At The Sierra Club Foundation, we have our own “all of the above strategy,” one that underlies all the campaigns that we support. While funding efforts to move America beyond dirty fossil fuels that contribute to disruptive climate change, we are ramping up clean energy funding so we aren’t simply replacing one fossil fuel with another. From wind to solar to energy efficiency, we are funding a clean, green, renewable energy future for a prosperous America for all.

The Sierra Club Foundation bridges the intersection of strategic philanthropy and grassroots advocacy. We partner with thousands of individual and institutional donors from across the U.S. to invest in grassroots-based organizations that have an outsized impact on the health of the planet. Together, we are building the momentum to win!
