7th Generation Advisors (SGA) was founded in 2007 on the ancient Native American philosophy that the decisions we make today should result in a sustainable world seven generations into the future. 

In 2016, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) retained SGA to manage and expand its Conservation and First Nations programs and to add an action-oriented Climate Program. When we began, LDF had a staff of 2 and made average annual grants of $2 million. In three years we expanded the team to 20, managing an annual average grant portfolio of $15 million with some of the world’s most innovative and impactful initiatives. Due to its new global reach and influence, in July 2019 LDF merged with the Earth Alliance and several key programs were divested to SGA.

We are now seeking support and new partners to continue these important sustainability initiatives.

Our current programs include:


      • California-China Carbon Markets Linkage

      • Clean Energy Access Fund (CEAF)

      • COP25 Chile Advisory

      • R20 Project Sourcing


      • Eco-Literacy
