Rihanna‘s nonprofit organization The Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) has committed $15 million to the climate justice movement in the U.S. and Caribbean.
CLF is offering this round of funding in partnership with #StartSmall, Jack Dorsey‘s philanthropic initiative.
Through CLF’s justice pillar, the foundation supports organizations on the frontlines fighting for new, equitable systems and policy change.
These grants are focused on and led by women, youth, Black, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+ and people of color to accelerate climate justice for those at greatest risk.
“At the Clara Lionel Foundation, much of the work is rooted in the understanding that climate disasters, which are growing in frequency and intensity, do not impact all communities equally, with communities of color and island nations facing the brunt of climate change. This is why CLF prioritizes both climate resilience and climate justice work across the U.S. and Caribbean,” said Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty, Founder of the Clara Lionel Foundation.
“CLF believes strongly that funders must build partnerships with organizations and acknowledge their deep understanding of what is necessary to achieve climate justice in their own communities,” said Justine Lucas, Executive Director of the Clara Lionel Foundation.
The Clara Lionel Foundation was founded in 2012 by the Barbadian music superstar in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. CLF supports and funds climate resilience and justice initiatives in the Caribbean and the United States.
