What We Do

We trust women. We believe in women.
Women are the solution.

Women understand innately that the health of the land, the health of our Earth is directly tied to the health of their families, children, and community. Women are the way forward out of the climate crisis and into a new regenerative age where people and our planet are in harmony.

Even though women have proven to be the most effective stewards of the Earth, they receive less than two cents of every charitable dollar committed to climate and environmental efforts. In order to safeguard our future, this paradigm must change.

Daughters for Earth believes that by putting capital into the hands of women changemakers around the world, these efforts can quickly scale and become a powerful force in the fight against climate change. Daughters supports women-led and women-operated nature conservation (on land and sea), restoration, and regenerative agriculture projects around the world that are directly contributing to solving the climate crisis by protecting and restoring the Earth.

Daughters for Earth’s focus on nature conservation, restoration, and regenerative agriculture is based on science spearheaded by One Earth that proves we have the solutions to the climate crisis right now. We can, in fact, limit global average temperature rise to the critical 1.5°C limit through three pillars of action - a just transition to 100% renewable energy, protecting and restoring 50% of the worlds lands and seas, and shifting to regenerative farming methods. While the energy transition is underway, efforts to protect nature and scale regenerative farming that strengthen community and grassroots efforts need to scale much faster. 

With just 2% of philanthropic resources going to environmental causes, and just a fraction of that reaching grassroots and community-led efforts led by women, there is a huge opportunity to drive change by getting resources to these on-the-ground efforts.

Why Women? When women anchor the model, community development has the largest dollar-for-dollar traction, and community-led preservation automatically follows as a natural byproduct.

Daughters for Earth is dedicated to raising and deploying $100 million to women-led projects around the world that are driving change from the ground up. Through a powerful model of collaboration with leading experts, our global advisory council, and trusted partners with decades of experience, Daughters for Earth identifies and vets highly effective women-led projects around the world, and supports them with much-needed funding and awareness.
