The Funders Network on Trade and Globalization (FNTG) "is a project sponsored by the Environmental Grantmakers Association." [1] The project is now known as the Edge Funders Alliance.

"The mission of the Funders Network on Trade and Globalization is to support foundations and other members of the funding community in their efforts to promote global relations, policies and institutions that foster environmentally sustainable, human-centered and just economic development in the US and around the world.
"FNTG emerged out of a series of briefings organized by the Environmental Grantmakers Association and the Consultative Group on Biodiversity in Seattle during the 3rd Ministerial Meetings of the World Trade Organization towards the end of 1999. Over 40 funders attended these briefings and civil society-led events during those dramatic days, and a decision was made soon after to launch a new network devoted to trade and broader globalization issues."
