Leonardo DiCaprio's Foundation Awards $20 Million in Environmental Grants

Leonardo DiCaprio‘s foundation is awarding $20 million in grants in his hope to make the world a more environmentally friendly place.

The $20 million will be spread across more than 100 organizations and it increases his foundation’s total direct financial impact to over $80 million since 1998.

“We are proud to support the work of over 100 organizations at home and abroad. These grantees are active on the ground, protecting our oceans, forests and endangered species for future generations – and tackling the urgent, existential challenges of climate change,” Leo said in a speech delivered to a climate change conference at Yale University on Tuesday (September 19).

Leo has called for urgent action to move to a world powered by renewable energy instead of relying on fossil fuels.

“There exist today many proven technologies in renewable energy, clean transportation, and sustainable agriculture, that we can begin a build a brighter future for all of us,” he said. “Our challenge is to find new ways to power our lives, employ millions of people and turn every individual into an advocate for clean air and drinkable water. We must demand that politicians accept climate science and make bold commitments before it is too late.”

    Wait, is he still taking private jets everywhere?

  • rosaryblue

    Leo is doing great work. Everyone tags him for flying around in jets but what other celebrity has worked for so long and so tirelessly for a charity? Most of them pop in and out of stuff but Leo is dedicated to the environment and I give him a lot of credit for what he’s done.

    Hi ladies! Like I said on the other thread – shout out to Leo for consistently donating grants to protect Mother Earth.

  • betterday

    Lol.. or maybe Toni in disguise. Back to ig watching, Toni just liked Lukas’s last picture and he’s not even following her anymore, like girl!!, move on and get some self esteem lady!!!.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    I don’t really want to deal with her or check her social media. I hope this isn’t going anywhere with Leo and she will be gone soon enough. Such a pathetic person.

    Like i’m kind of shocked by her blatant desperation!. You unfollow me and l act like you’re dead too, my goodness Toni, this is like a guerrilla style mission to get Leo back at all costs!.

    After seeing her behavior at the end of their relationship and then another bf who treated her like crap… I’m not surprised.

    Wow amazing news from the LDF Foundation!!! Much needed hope for the worlds future. Leo forever my champion! ♥

  • paludal1

    Thanks for posting, this was great to watch! Leo mentioned in the video that he’s working on a new documentary about methane. Wonder if it will be out next year. Maybe the doc and a movie if we’re lucky, lol!!

    ETA: I recall some of the reviews for BTF said that it should’ve focused more closely on one issue. So maybe the doc he’s working on now is a response to that?

  • also…

    Check out Madison ig story and iamstevenbadias ig story. You can see Leo in both. They’re singing happy bday to Richie. Whose the blonde next to Leo? Is that Toni?

    It’s a blonde but I don’t think that’s Toni. The girl has shorter hair in the front whereas I believe Toni has longer.

  • also…

    But in the ig story she posted last night her hair looks short.

  • Surfgirl
  • also…

    Or Richie’s gf Megan?

  • commonsense

    I don’t think it’s Toni, not based on the IG stories she posted today where her hair is much longer than the girl in these IG stories.

  • marie

    I think Megan is sitting across from Richie in iamstevenbadias story

  • also…

    You’re right. I just saw her.

  • Josie

    To be me the girl doesn’t look like Toni or Megan. Maybe Surfgirl is right.

  • marie

    I think it looks like Toni but I don’t know if that’s just because I’m expecting her to start showing up more. That’s how Leo’s officials start being obvious- we get dinner pics of them sitting beside each other. Toni’s IG stories she has longer hair but it could be extensions on set.
    So I’m going with that is Toni and we’ll have it confirmed when she posts an IG story. And if it is, she was invited there by Leo- not she was stalking or it was a coincidence they were in the same place.

  • also…

    Her hair looks short in the ig story she posted last night. Like you said she was on set today so they could’ve been extensions lol.

  • betterday

    lt’s not Toni!, and l see her fanclub are already desperate for it to be her lol.

  • mint

    It’s not her lol. Her shoulders and head are bigger than this girl’s. I can tell it’s not her.

  • betterday

    No biggie but the slight facial profile shown, head circumference and narrower shoulders gave it away lol.

  • mint

    Lol yes exactly.

  • Josie

    This fan also said that this is Nikki

    “Toni just liked Lukas’s last picture and he’s not even following her anymore”!
    What a CRIME. She should accused of ‘low self-esteem’ and be jailed.
    ……
    She is her, she is not her, her shoulder are bigger…it’s not her, but they are narrow, she is her. Hair are longer, no hair are shorter….
    Boring talk. As usual.

  • pitta

    Head circumference! LOL But you’re right. She has a big head…

  • Josie

    Hopefully a new movie 🤞

  • Josie

    Thanks for posting.
    Hopefully I will have the time to watch this later.
