The goals of this Federal Policy Briefing are two-fold: to learn and to set the stage for the next four years.

The mission of the Environmental Grantmakers Association is to help member organizations become more effective environmental grantmakers through information sharing, collaboration and networking. EGA’s vision is one of an informed, diverse, collaborative network of effective grantmakers who are supporting work toward a sustainable world. Recognizing the importance of diverse perspectives, the organization values ecological integrity, justice, environmental stewardship, inclusivity, transparency, accountability and respect, balancing pragmatism with the long view.

Three strategic goals have been identified to achieve the mission and vision:

  • Achieve an active, satisfied, and more effective membership
  • Serve and enhance the field of environmental philanthropy
  • Sustain financial stability, appropriate staff, and governance to assure a cost effective, healthy EGA that meets its programmatic goals.
