Join Climate Rise, the one-day virtual rally to show our solidarity with our fellow humans and nonprofits in this time of crisis. We are an energized community and we want Climate Rise to inspire you to achieve something that gives you hope, comfort, or an outlet for your creativity or your sweat equity.
This event is free and anyone can participate. We encourage kids to sign up too! All you need to do is sign up and pick an activity that inspires and challenges you. There are no boundaries to what you can do. Need ideas? Check out the Photobook from Climate Rise in April here.
Right now is a time of extraordinary change.
Let’s unite in this fight for change and support our beneficiary network struggling to continue its critical work. Racial injustice and environmental justice are inextricably linked and we are all strengthened by the work that so many of our beneficiaries are doing on both of these issues right now. Let’s rise to fundraise and create awareness about the impact of climate change on the same communities that already suffer the most from systemic racism. Learn more about Climate Ride beneficiaries working on these issues.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all and many of our vital nonprofits are in desperate need of support. We have heard from many of you who recognize this need. If you wish to fundraise as part of your participation, you can select from our full list of more than 100 nonprofits who do the hard work of protecting the planet.
When we recover from this, it will be the beginning of a new era. It will be the most important time ever to support the environment and our grants program so that organizations, large and small, can continue to push for the policies, solutions, and political will to protect our planet while building anew. Join us to create a positive impact for the future.
