Climate change is the issue of our time.

Climate impacts are rapidly increasing while time and carbon budgets are running out. We have only a limited number of years to keep global temperature rise to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius. Beyond this temperature a rise of even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people. Urgent and unprecedented actions are needed to minimize the rise in global temperature.

Founded in 2004 by Richard and Dee Lawrence, High Tide Foundation has a long-standing commitment to fighting climate change and protecting our planet.


High Tide Foundation is a private charitable foundation. Its co-directors are Richard and Dee Lawrence and its Executive Director is Marisa de Belloy.


We support organizations committed to fighting climate change. We look for grantees that are passionate, risk-taking and collaborative. We also seek partners that fill a critical gap in climate strategy, have measurable results and an innovative approach to their work. We are interested in funding climate mitigation programs in the US and globally.


High Tide Foundation and its related entities support companies looking to make a big impact on carbon emissions with new, early-stage technology. We invest across numerous sectors including renewable energy, food & agriculture and technology. Most of our investments are located in the United States.


We regret that we are unable to accept unsolicited proposals.
