Our Mission, Vision, and Values
The Partnership Project provides fiscal sponsorship and organizational support to environmental campaigns and partners working to protect our environment and sustain it for future generations.
Our vision is to build a stronger, more connected, and more equitable environmental movement.
We are guided in our work by four core values:
We are the Partnership Project.
As a fiscal sponsor, convener, and collaborator, we exist to support the work of our partner organizations in the environmental movement.
Twenty five years ago, we saw a landscape where environmental groups were working day and night to combat climate change and environmental destruction, but often didn’t work together effectively. The Partnership Project was founded to help foster collaboration and shared learning in the environmental community.
Since then, we’ve expanded our work to provide the tools and infrastructure needed to launch new campaigns and coalitions — always behind the scenes, always in service of growing and strengthening the environmental movement for all. We act as an incubator, helping foster new collaborative efforts in support of climate solutions and environmental justice. We provide the financial management and administrative support our partners need to operate more efficiently so they can focus on their work. And we provide resources for the broader environmental community through the expertise of our staff and programs — particularly when it comes to advocacy, communications, polling, and data.
We recognize that, historically, our services were mostly shared with those already in-the-know — which led to well-resourced, nationally-focused projects benefiting the most from our work. We’re dedicated to changing that. In order to help create an environmental movement that is more diverse, inclusive and equitable, we must acknowledge the systemic issues that have disproportionately affected marginalized communities. The Partnership Project is committed to helping support and build more capacity for groups striving for environmental justice, and to more fully support opportunities for staff growth and development throughout the environmental community.
Because the work continues to evolve, so will we — guided by the belief that working together will allow us all to accomplish more.
We are the Partnership Project, your partner to save the planet.
