Adam McKay, who directed last year’s climate change satire don’t look up has donated $4 million to the Climate Emergency Fund and joined its board of directors. It is the largest personal contribution since the fund was founded in 2019.

“The Climate Emergency Fund is unique in its commitment to funding civil, nonviolent and disruptive activism,” said the Oscar-winning filmmaker. “We are past the time of courtesy, the past time of small steps. I am proud to support their efforts and ask others to join me in doing all we can to avert the impact of the rapidly worsening climate crisis.”

The fund was formed in 2019 as a bridge between philanthropy and climate activism. According to its website, CEF has funded more than 90 organizations and trained more than 22,000 climate activists, disbursing more than $4 million this year alone. As an unendowed fund, it relies on donors to raise money, which it then deploys strategically among activist groups using disruptive protest and demanding transformative rather than incremental change.
