2023 Annual Report Summary
February 29, 2024

The CO2 Foundation has created a summary of its 2023 Annual Report, which is available as a PDF and in short form below.

In 2023, the CO2 Foundation continued its fledgling grantmaking program by administering grants made during the first round of funding and putting out a second-round funding opportunity. Karen Wolfgang completed her first full year as Executive Director, and the Foundation released $300,000 in grant funds.

The Foundation’s second funding opportunity was titled Extreme weather and what to do about it. This year’s call for proposals was open 7/24/23-10/15/23, as compared to last year’s 1/10/22-3/31/22, and as a result remained in progress at the end of the year. The funds committed and released in 2023 went toward both new and continuing grantees; during the second funding opportunity, the Foundation received 37 LOIs, requested 14 full proposals, and made 10 new grants, in addition to funding 5 returning grantees. The following are summaries of each of the grants the Foundation released this year; please note that last year, our Annual Report listed instead grants that were committed, so you may see some duplicates below.

As it’s released, more information about the most recent grantees, their projects, and future funding opportunities can be found on our News page.
