To address climate change, we advance solutions for clean energy, mobility, and resilient communities.

Climate change is real. It is happening. It is accelerating. All over the world, people are experiencing its effects. And these are becoming more devastating every year—a trend that can be checked only through dramatic, global effort.

Generation Air Qs Asg 700 Aq0110 Zoom While climate change is a global challenge, cities, states, and regions have become vital agents of leadership. We believe breakthroughs and progress will continue coming from the ground up and that Barr can help catalyze and advance solutions and leadership across our region in ways that also spur broader action. On occasion, we engage in targeted national or global efforts with significant opportunities to contribute to impact. Yet our principal geographic focus is the U.S. Northeast.

We focus our mitigation efforts on the two areas that produce the most greenhouse gas emissions: 1) how we generate and use energy; and 2) how we move around.

In addition, we acknowledge that even with concerted efforts to mitigate the impacts of climate change, they are inevitable. Coastal cities such as Boston are particularly vulnerable. Our Climate Resilience focus area aims to increase the capacity of Metro Boston communities to prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Climate Program Grantmaking Process and Inquiries

Grants awarded by the Barr Foundation originate in different ways. The majority are initiated by our staff. Additionally, given the value we place on long-term partnerships, many grants are renewals for current grantees.

However, we welcome inquiries from those who feel their work may align with Barr’s priorities and who wish to introduce themselves to us. The best approach is to send a brief description (we suggest 300–400 words) of your organization and the funding opportunity you would like us to consider to climate@barrfoundation.org.
