THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT 

The Climate Coalition is the UK's largest group of people dedicated to action on climate change and limiting its impact on the world's poorest communities. We are more than 100 organisations, from environment and development charities to unions, faith and community groups. We demand practical action by the UK to keep global warming as far as possible below the 2 degree C danger threshold.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from several prominent grant makers recently
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • Fundraising costs are unusually low relative to funds raised
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end
