Donate to Climate Change

Donate to the world’s most effective climate advocates.

Most Americans want climate solutions—but few take action. This is 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.
