The Sustainability Funders was founded in 2001 to directly address the harmful environmental and social impacts of current modes of producing, consuming and disposing of material goods.

We believe it is possible to create a sustainable and just world where people can live healthy and fulfilling lives and natural resources can be conserved for future generations.
We also coordinate the New Economy Discussion Group, which offers funders the opportunity to learn and engage on emerging New Economy Issues.
