The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is now part of Earth Alliance

A new philanthropic partnership dedicated to urgently addressing climate change and environmental threats to life on Earth.

A new organization to help address the urgent threats to our planet’s life support systems, Earth Alliance marks the next step in the evolution of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation as it works to accelerate the rate of change and adoption of environmental solutions on a global scale.

Born out of the shared passion of its founding co-chairs: actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio, businesswoman and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs, and investor and philanthropist Brian Sheth – the Alliance seeks to bring together the best minds in science, conservation and philanthropy to urgently respond to a growing climate crisis and the staggering loss of biodiversity threatening the stability of life on Earth.

LDF, together with its Alliance partners Emerson Collective and Global Wildlife Conservation, will focus on addressing the intertwined threats of climate change and biodiversity loss through its global work to protect ecosystems and wildlife, ensure climate justice, support renewable energy, and secure indigenous rights to the benefit of all life on Earth.
