Ways to Give

There are many ways to support Climate Solutions. Please contact our Development Team at development@climatesolutions.org with any questions or for more detailed information about any of the options below.

Make a gift online

As we experience climate impacts close to home, it is clear we need to accelerate solutions. We can have 100% clean electricity for our grid, cleaner fuels and electrification to power our transportation, and clean, energy-smart buildings where we work and live. 

With your help, we can all accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy. Contribute with a credit card gift here.

Make a stock donation

Setting up stock transfers through your broker to ours is a great way to contribute to our work.

Make a gift through your Donor Advised fund

If you are planning to make a gift through your Donor Advised Fund, and you'd like it to count towards our year-end giving campaign, email us at development@climatesolutions.org with your name, expected donation amount, and the name of your donor advised fund and we'll count your gift towards our goal.

Consider QCDs from your IRAs and 401k plans

If you are over age 70, you can make direct transfers of up to $100,000 per year from your accounts to qualified charities like Climate Solutions. These Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) are not counted as taxable income for federal tax purposes, so you get a significant tax benefit.  For example, if you withdraw $10,000 and directly contribute $1,000 to Climate Solutions, you only pay tax on $9,000. You receive a tax benefit whether you itemize or not.*

*To make a bequest or other planned gift, you should speak with your tax adviser or attorney, as this is not professional tax or legal advice.

Make your gift go twice as far — matching gifts

If your company or agency has a matching program, your donation dollars mean twice as much. Find out if your employer will match your contribution to Climate Solutions, then send us a copy of your employer’s match forms and let us know that you want your donation to qualify you for membership.
