About this organization






The Sierra Club Foundation promotes climate solutions, conservation, and movement building through a powerful combination of strategic philanthropy and grassroots advocacy. The Foundation is the fiscal sponsor of Sierra Club's charitable environmental programs.


Beyond coal - The long-term goal of this program is to reverse the social, economic and environmental damage caused by global climate change by working to ensure our electricity is carbon-free by no later than 2030 and transitioning to 100 percent clean renewable energy by no later than 2050. The program's specific goals - working in partnership with allied organizations - are to retire existing coal plants, prevent construction of new coal-fired power plants, block expansion of the U.S. gas fleet, stop infrastructure projects designed to facilitate and increase overseas exports of coal and gas, and promote clean energy alternatives such as wind and solar while advancing equity and justice, and ensuring a just economic transition for workers and impacted communities.
