Climate Justice in the field: An interview with the Donors of Color Network

Though the growing climate crisis makes headlines every day, its enormity and complexity can be overwhelming to donors who often struggle to know where to begin and how to devise equitable strategies to address its impacts. This often prevents funders from engaging, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Candid’s in-depth guide, Centering equity and justice in climate philanthropy, outlines approaches that have worked for experienced funders, including how intermediaries can help motivate and inspire climate funders to grow their giving.

Recently we interviewed Abdul Dosunmu, campaign manager for the Donors of Color Network’s (DOCN) Climate Funders Justice Pledge, one of the intermediaries featured in the guide. In this blog, we will share his insights on how this initiative is growing support for groups that have historically lacked access to funding.
