The Linden Trust for Conservation is a private foundation that funds left-of-center climate change activism and traditional environmental conservation efforts. The organization was originally founded as the Lawrence and Dana Linden Family Foundation, but was restructured in 2006 by former Goldman Sachs advisor and former Merrill Lynch investment banking director Roger Ullman. With a focus on mitigating effects of climate change, the Linden Trust for Conservation claims to employ market mechanisms to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and implement systems to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. [1]

The Linden Trust for Conservation operates alongside LTC Action, a 501(c)(4) lobbying nonprofit created in 2019 to lobby for carbon-capture policies and funded exclusively by personal contributions from Lawrence Linden. [2]

Founder Lawrence Linden has also sat on the board of several other environmental activism groups including the , the World Wildlife Fund, and Resources for the Future. From 1978 to 1981 Linden was also a White House staffer during the Carter Administration. [3]
