We invest in a diverse grants portfolio to grow clean energy

For nearly 30 years, U.S. Energy Foundation has supported grantees to help educate policymakers and the general public about the benefits of a clean energy economy that benefits everyone. We cultivate networks of diverse allies who work to deliver long-term results, making progress where others have not. Our grantees include business, health, environmental, labor, equity, community, faith, and consumer groups, as well as policy experts, think tanks, universities, and more. Learn more about our most recent grants. We do not accept unsolicited proposals or letters of inquiry.


We support a network of advocates and experts who inform and execute strategies to achieve a clean energy future.
