The ECF greatly appreciates the funding that supports our work and contributes to effective progress on the route toward a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions society. We are fortunate to count on the support of the following philanthropic partners.


The following figures are based on our latest audited financial overview from 2022. Apart from administration and in-house
projects, they cover regranting activities across the ECF’s work programmes.

In addition to these programmes, we also incubate platforms to create and build out new institutions that are needed for climate action. These figures do not include the expenditures related to such ECF-hosted platforms, which have a specific governance structure and restricted funding.

The ECF’s financial statements meet the conditions for a Public Benefit Organisation under Dutch law. Please visit our FAQ page for more information on our grantmaking process.
