You can help us hold corporations accountable for a livable planet.

We need urgent action to tackle the climate emergency and protect life on Earth. But businesses are moving far too slowly and there’s a long way to go.

ClientEarth levels the playing field, driving the far-reaching change that’s so desperately needed but we can only do this thanks to the vision and generosity of our supporters.

This is a fight we can and must win. Join us.

Donate Give monthly

Donating unclaimed settlement funds (Cy Pres)

Did you know you can donate your unclaimed class action settlements to ClientEarth and help support our legal work to protect people and planet?

Occasionally when class action lawsuits are settled it is not possible to distribute money to some or all the class members. This may happen when class members are difficult to find or when it is not feasible to distribute all the funds. The cy pres doctrine allows remaining settlement funds to be distributed to an appropriate non-profit charity organization.

If you are interested in adding ClientEarth to your cy pres nomination list, or would like more information about our work, please contact us at info.us@clientearth.org
