The Earth Fund was created by a commitment of $10 billion from Jeff Bezos in 2020 to be disbursed as grants to address climate and nature within the current decade. To deliver this vision, we are building a diverse team inspired by the belief that there is a better way, and committed to being part of it.
Who We Are
The problems we face require all hands on-deck. Philanthropy has a crucial role to play in providing effective flexible funds and risk-taking capacity, and in bringing independent expertise to the design of solutions. The Bezos Earth Fund team is a new philanthropy, and as such we are still learning from others. We are building an inspiring team of thought leaders, problem solvers, and doers from scientific, government, private, and nonprofit backgrounds, all working to deliver transformational change in these critical times.
With our first grants made in November 2020, we are a new organization, new but already building an exciting portfolio of exciting programs.
We are a diverse team of individuals combining deep professionalism with passion and purpose to drive transformative change.
