Partner Spotlight

The Sierra Club

The Moore Charitable Foundation is proud to support The Sierra Club, the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. As champions of wilderness protection and clean energy, The Sierra Club has been integral in helping to pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. They have worked diligently to make progress on their #BeyondCoal campaign, specifically in North Carolina, which aims to replace dirty coal plants with clean energy alternatives. Their monumental efforts have clearly paid off—they recently closed the 200th plant, marking a major milestone. Their success proves that a community-based grassroots effort can create a huge ripple effect around the country and successfully move the needle for a cleaner world.
