Reducing Human Impact on the Environment

Environment – Money in Politics Initiative

The Arkay Foundation has had a long commitment to reducing human impact on the environment to counteract global climate change. In 2012, the Foundation refocused its grantmaking in this area to launch an initiative to engage environmental organizations in building a broader movement to confront the undue influence of money in the U.S. political process. The Foundation believes that environmental interests must be actively represented in the fight against the influence of money in the US political system. The goal of the initiative is to encourage and support the environmental community to be active participants in the efforts to address the effects of money in politics by educating, engaging and mobilizing their constituencies to take action to bring about reform.

The Foundation issues Requests for Proposals to selected organizations for funding under this initiative.
