Earth’s Call Fund’s catalytic $100K grant to Future Coalition was joined by $100K from the Wallace Global Fund, which continued to build fundraising momentum. These funds were used to support the NYC Climate Strike logistics and operations.‍

During a full week of meetings, the Earth's Call Fund team attended a dizzying array of events, including a Climate Action Benefit Concert with Climate Strike leadership; Planet 911; Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors: “American Leadership in Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals”; Ford Foundation for Social Justice: “Unlocking Full Potential of Philanthropy”; Brookings Institution, UN Foundation,, Fridays for Future, and Skoll Foundation.

Individual and small group meetings included connections with the Earth Guardians, World Pulse, The Climate Mobilization, Do Something, Circle of Blue, Participant Media, Climate Emergency Fund, TED Fellows, CityKids, Max Schorr (CEO GOOD Worldwide), Paul Gilding, Richard Perl, and EarthX.
