When we say CCL is volunteer-driven, we mean it.
Our volunteers do the most important work of Citizens’ Climate – raising awareness and building support for climate solutions with their members of Congress. They work in local chapters to build relationships with elected officials, local businesses, community leaders, and media.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and Citizens’ Climate Education (CCE) support our volunteers across the broad spectrum of their work. CCE is a registered 501(c)(3) organization that provides training, tools, and other resources to help our volunteers become effective climate advocates. CCL is a registered 501(c)(4) organization that supports volunteer-led and other lobbying efforts in Congress on select climate legislation.
Our sources of funding
Citizens’ Climate is funded primarily through foundations and individual donors. We do not accept donations from the fossil fuel industry. The backbone of our financing comes from individual donors who contribute in significant and ongoing ways. These donations allow us to scale our work and take advantage of new opportunities as they emerge.
Evergreen Donors donate on a recurring monthly basis at any amount. Through at least February 2020, we are providing a dollar-for-dollar gift match each month to all recurring monthly donations made either to Citizens’ Climate Education (tax-deductible) or Citizens’ Climate Lobby (not tax-deductible)! To become an Evergreen Donor, choose the ‘monthly’ option when you donate online.
Climate Guardians donate at a level of $10,000 or more per year. Many Climate Guardians help create gift match pools to inspire others. To learn more about becoming a Climate Guardian and the importance of these gifts, please contact our development team.
