Welcome to Clif Bar Family Foundation. We started the Foundation to support grassroots groups led by people whose vision and commitment we deeply admired. We know what a few people with innovative ideas and persistence can accomplish – Clif Bar’s roots are grassroots.
Over the years, we’ve been proud to support hundreds of organizations that are working tirelessly to conserve wild places and open spaces, advocate for pedestrian- and bike-friendly communities, and expand urban forests and restore watersheds. These nonprofits often are on the front lines, striving to safeguard public health and the environment by expanding organic farming acreage, improving local and global food security, investigating the impact of environmental toxins, and tackling the root causes of climate change.
We look forward to building new relationships with pioneering organizations during the months and years ahead.
