US philanthropists vow to raise millions for climate activists

As reported in the Guardian newspaper

Fund donates £500,000 to grassroots Extinction Rebellion and other groups, with promise of more to come.

The money will initially be used to support school strike and Extinction Rebellion groups in the US, but will also be available to help “seed” similar groups around the world.

A spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion welcomed the move, saying: “It’s a signal that we are coming to a tipping point. In the past, philanthropy has often been about personal interest, but now people are realising that we are all in this together and putting their money forward for our collective wellbeing.”
