Climate Champions week 2018

Join the Climate Champions

At this time of the year, we have a lot to celebrate. The season of giving is upon us and the year-end holidays are approaching. And here at Climate Solutions, we're celebrating our 20th anniversary... that’s why we’re celebrating with our Week of Climate Champions!
 
Our Week of Climate Champions continues today with #GivingTuesday and wraps up with our 10th Annual Dinner in Portland. Throughout this week, we have an ambitious goal of raising $120,000 and we hope you will take part in our celebrations. 
 

Will you join our Week of Climate Champions by making a donation today?
Or celebrate every month with a monthly sustaining gift!

 
#GivingTuesday and our Annual Dinner are focused on building relationships, community, and a broad movement for climate action. Here in the Pacific Northwest and across the nation, we’ve seen growing momentum for the transition to a clean energy economy and we’re committed to achieving our vision of an equitable, clean energy future.

  • Champion transformational policies and market-based innovations;
  • Catalyze powerful partnerships and a diverse movement for action and accountability; and
  • Communicate a bold vision for solutions at the scale required by climate science.

With your support, we know that a better future, powered by clean energy, is possible. Thank you for considering a one-time gift or a monthly donation during this Week of Climate Champions.
