CCNF has the platform, the scientists, the thought leaders, the structure, and the plan to not just advance the national dialogue on climate change, but completely redefine it. All it takes is a few corporations or foundations to step up to the plate and back a project that is obviously working.
What is a national dialogue on climate change worth?
A unique opportunity for a corporation or foundation to become a recognized leader in the climate space
Sustaining sponsorship will enable a local or national corporation or foundation to raise its national profile across scientific and political spectrums, play a strategic role in the advancement of climate literacy in America (and the world, considering 20% of our traffic is international), and demonstrate real leadership in this space by serving as a highly visible patron of an ongoing and unprecedented bi-partisan dialogue on climate policy – one that will be grounded in science and based on shared values. No one has been able to achieve this, yet it is within our grasp. Will the business and philanthropic community step up?
What is your scope of ambition on climate?
With modest funding (e.g., a few individual and small business sponsors), CCNF will hire the staff of three required to sustain operations and continue scaling up and will establish an unprecedented, scientifically grounded marketplace of bi-partisan policy ideas on what can or should be done about climate change as a nation.
With moderate funding (e.g., one or two core sustaining sponsors), CCNF will expand operations to a level that will enable us to demonstrate results in national surveys within a year or two.
With a level of funding and resources remotely close to being commensurate to the challenge we face (e.g., five core sustaining sponsors who are as committed to informing and educating the public on this issue as we are), CCNF will be a game-changer.
With no corporate sponsorship or foundation funding, CCNF will die.
If you have the resources, help CCNF be the game-changer on this issue and make a sustaining commitment to financially support CCNF today. And if you want CCNF to advance climate literacy and the national dialogue before the key climate negotiations in Paris in late 2015, please do this soon. We can make this happen, but not without your help.
