Deadline reports that Adam McKay has not only donated $4 million to the Climate Emergency Fund -– reportedly the biggest personal pledge made to the fund since it was established in 2019 -– but has also joined its board of directors.
What exactly is the Climate Emergency Fund? In his press statement about his joining forces with the organization, McKay described it like this: “The Climate Emergency Fund is unique in their commitment to funding, civil, non-violent, disruptive activism.” The director added that due to the current state of climate change now, that kind of activism is more important than ever: “We are past time for politeness, past time for baby steps. I am proud to support their efforts and call on others to join me in doing everything we can to stave off the rapidly worsening impact of the climate crisis.”
McKay has reportedly been joined by outspoken Disney heir Abigail Disney, who recently announced a pledge of her own of $200,000 to the CEF.
