Climate Justice Resilience Fund

Supporting community-led solutions for climate resilience

The Climate Justice Resilience Fund supports women, youth, and Indigenous Peoples to create and share their own climate resilience solutions. CJRF focuses on how these solutions can drive systems-level change from the local to the global.

CJRF envisions a world where those hit hardest by climate change lead the way to a more just and equitable future for everyone.

The Climate Justice Resilience Fund was created in 2016 through a grant from the Oak Foundation. It is a project of New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity registered in the United States. In 2017, the Kendeda Fund became a member foundation. In 2020, CJRF partnered with the Robert Bosch Foundation.
