The Equitable Building Electrification Fund is designed to avoid imposing an agenda on community priorities, and to instead respond to the self-determined priorities elevated by community practitioners and justice leaders.
The needs and priorities of frontline communities are the primary focus of the EBE Fund.
New philanthropic models are needed to solve systemic challenges. The EBE Fund leads with a core intent of trusting in what frontline partners will focus on now to achieve effective community-based decarbonization strategies over the long-term.
The EBE Fund leads with an intersectional, root-cause analysis to find solutions that can transform the balance of power in the ownership and distribution of energy production, energy infrastructure, and housing.
The EBE Fund deliberately identifies grantee partners that will support priority needs being elevated from the ground.
The EBE Fund and Learning Community intend to shift power dynamics to help frontline community members and funders build relationships with one another.
