Founded in 1960, The Sierra Club Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity governed by an independent board of directors.
Our board and staff raise charitable funds, preserve and enhance these assets, and ensure they are used appropriately. As the fiscal sponsor of the charitable programs of the Sierra Club, we provide resources to it and other nonprofit organizations to support scientific, educational, literary, organizing, advocacy, and legal programs that further our charitable goals.
We work with individual and institutional donors to align financial resources with strategically focused campaigns, help build capacity in the environmental movement, and create partnerships with a broad spectrum of allied organizations that further our shared environmental goals.
We do this so that future generations will inherit a healthy planet with wild places left to explore.
