Donate to Climate Change | Citizens' Climate Lobby

Donate to the world’s most effective climate activists.

Most Americans worry about climate change, but few take action. That’s where Citizens’ Climate Lobby comes in.

We empower regular people across the country to build support for climate policies in their communities and in Congress. As a nonpartisan organization, we bring people from across the political spectrum together on climate action.

Our climate advocacy builds renewed hope for solving climate change – exactly what we need to push for a clean energy future.

Donations made to 501(c)(3) Citizens’ Climate Education (the button above) are tax deductible. If you are able to make a non-tax-deductible donation, you can donate to 501(c)(4) Citizens’ Climate Lobby.

Educate on climate advocacy and solutions

We provide educational trainings and materials to ensure our volunteers have what they need to be successful in their climate advocacy.

Mobilize climate action

We mobilize our volunteers to write letters to the editor, participate in tabling events and town halls, solicit endorsements from business leaders, and educate elected officials on climate solutions.

Pass climate legislation

We support our volunteers to lobby for strong climate policies – ones that reduce pollution, create jobs, and improve public health. We recently helped pass the biggest climate bill in American history, the Inflation Reduction Act.

We can’t solve climate change alone

Congress needs to know that the people they represent are concerned about climate change and want solutions. Our volunteers are trained and organized to effectively build political will and get climate policies passed.
