Huge momentum & matching gift pool starts today on Giving Tuesday!
Today is Giving Tuesday! After the frenzy of shopping that follows Thanksgiving—Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday—today’s the day to support the causes you believe in.
At CCL, our cause is a livable world. We believe (and economists agree!) that our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal is a crucial step to reducing our carbon emissions at the scale and speed we need to slow climate change. More than 85,000 supporters are building political will for that policy right now: talking to their representatives and senators, writing letters to the editor, and reaching out in their own communities.
CCL’s supporters are as generous with their financial donations as with their time and energy. That’s how CCL’s staff has managed to keep pace with an unbelievable explosion of growth, doubling the size of our volunteer base year after year.
Now, 60 generous donors known as the Women Who Will and Generous Gentlemen have stepped forward, offering $10,000 each to create an astonishing $600,000 matching gift pool! Starting today, Giving Tuesday, all donations through the end of the year will be matched dollar-for-dollar until the challenge is met.
“I’m both excited and a bit terrified about this,” says CCL’s Development Director Lynate Pettengill, who helped facilitate the incredible generosity of the Women Who Will and Generous Gentlemen. “But I’ve learned to have faith in the mighty CCL volunteer, and I bet we’re going to reach this aggressive goal.”
Starting today, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Citizens’ Climate Education. Your gift will help train and empower your fellow citizens, preparing CCL for the biggest and most important year of climate action yet.
Here’s where you can make your donation. Thank you for your support and your commitment to a livable world!
