Our Mission & Purpose


The Chesapeake Bay Funders Network brings funders together to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay and the land, water, and communities of the broader Bay region through collaborative funding strategies that impact the social, political, and economic systems influencing the region's environment. 




We do this by providing opportunities - in a funders-only setting - for grantmakers to:
  • Exchange peer-to-peer information
  • Review the science and policies and of Bay watershed restoration
  • Develop joint initiatives and fund special projects
  • Identify both near-term and long-term shared goals and the strategies to achieve them
  • Increase the impact of philanthropic investments at a local and regional scale.
