Mountain Philanthropies works with organizations that pursue equity and social justice in our country and around the world, and who are leading innovation to address complex problems. In particular, we support activities that seek to restore and amplify the voices of communities victimized by racial and political injustice.

Voting and Civic Participation

We seek to restore, protect, and activate all voices in U.S. democracy.

Criminal Justice Reform

We advance equity for people negatively impacted by systemic oppression because of their race and economic status.


Climate Change

We help under-resourced but consequential actors fight climate change. 

Forced Migration

We resource humanitarian and legal services to help refugees when they are most vulnerable – often when they are on the move – and in places governments and large nonprofits are unable or unwilling to go.
