About the Reilly Fund

The William K. Reilly Fund for Environmental Governance and Leadership is designed to further the center’s mission of improving environmental governance in the United States—that is, the institutions and means by which decisions are made that protect the environment and natural resources and enhance their relationships to the nation’s economic health and social well-being. The center invites corporate, foundation and nonprofit organizations to engage as William K. Reilly Fund sponsors. As environmental challenges become more complex, the country urgently needs platforms for engaging business, government, nonprofits and the academic community in constructive dialogue and in devising new ways of resolving environmental issues. Generous support of the Reilly Fund will be of tremendous help as the center seeks to provide meaningful forums for such dialogue based on sound analysis.

Support the Fund 

Organizational sponsors of the Reilly Fund will be recognized for their support at Center for Environmental Policy events, in communications and on the center's website.
