FEATURED GRANTS

League of Conservation Voters


The Berger Action Fund is proud to support the League of Conservation Voters, a national environmental nonprofit committed to building a world with clean water, clean air, public lands, and a safe climate that are protected by a just and equitable democracy. It drives environmental progress by influencing policy on the local, state, and national levels. The League and its affiliated state leagues work to promote pro-environment policies by building an ambitious grassroots movement focused on curbing the impacts of climate change.

Berger’s grant to the League of Conservation Voters supports efforts to urge the Biden Administration and Congress to take action on climate policy by investing in clean energy, healthier water systems, sustainable agriculture, and coastal restoration programs.

Community Catalyst Action Fund

The Berger Action Fund supports Community Catalyst Action Fund’s work to make health care more accessible and affordable throughout the country. Community Catalyst Action Fund advocates for policy by bringing consumers to the table so that they have a say in their health care.

Berger’s support enables Community Catalyst Action Fund to partner with local and state organizations to advance policies that expand health care access, reduce costs, and ensure comprehensive coverage, particularly for the most vulnerable individuals and families. Additionally, Berger supports its efforts to protect health care coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions and low-income families relying on Medicaid.

The Nature Conservancy

The Berger Action Fund provides financial support to The Nature Conservancy, a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. Berger’s grant to the Conservancy helps conserve lands and waters worldwide through scientific research, local partnerships, and public advocacy. With a focus on combatting the dual threats of the climate crisis and biodiversity loss, Berger’s work with The Nature Conservancy aims to accelerate the pace and scale of conservation.

Berger’s support helped secure the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act, legislation that fully funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). LWCF is America's most important conservation program that improves outdoor recreation opportunities and protects national parks, wildlife refuges, forests, and trails.

Working collaboratively with decision-makers, landowners, and state chapters throughout the country, The Nature Conservancy has secured numerous conservation policy victories and increased both public and private conservation.
