The Nathan Cummings (NCF) is a private grant making foundation rooted in the Jewish tradition and committed to democratic values and social justice. NCF seeks to make progress on two pressing and interconnected problems: inequality and climate change. We address both climate change and inequality through an integrated framework, investing in four focus areas that together advance our vision of a healthy planet and a healthy democracy. These include Voice Creativity & Culture, Inclusive Clean Economy, Racial & Economic Justice and Corporate & Political Accountability.

The Foundation's Corporate & Political Accountability (CPA) program is unique in its use of both grant making and active ownership strategies to address the ways in which corporations can both help and hinder progress on climate change and inequality. The Foundation's CPA portfolio includes a number of grantees working to activate investors to hold corporations accountable for their impacts on climate change and inequality. Current grantees in this space include the 50/50 Climate Project, the Center for Political Accountability, Open MIC, the Interfaith Center on Corporate Accoutability and Ceres.
