Sustainable Development Program Review, 2005–2010
The Rockefeller Brothers Fund has released a report examining its Sustainable Development grantmaking from 2005–2010. The Sustainable Development program advances global stewardship that is ecologically based, economically sound, socially just, culturally appropriate, and consistent with intergenerational equity. The RBF first began grantmaking on climate change in 1984 and has consistently maintained an interest in climate change through this period. The most recent phase of the RBF‘s work on climate change began in 2005, with the board‘s endorsement of the proposal to shift the bulk of the Fund‘s Sustainable Development resources toward combating climate change. During this period (2005–2010), overall Sustainable Development spending totaled $43.6 million.
