What We Do

The Cleveland Climate Action Fund (CCAF) will be the region’s leading conduit to drive transformative carbon mitigation outcomes, creating vibrant and healthy communities.

In 2008 the Cleveland Climate Action Fund (formerly known as the Cleveland Carbon Fund) was founded as the first community-based, open-access carbon reduction fund in the United States. Since then, the Fund has invested more than $100,000 in projects throughout Cleveland that both improve resident’s lives while mitigating carbon emissions. The CCAF provides a benefit to the community by funding local projects that supports people to take climate action. Donor’s contributions create sustainable, positive change in local Cleveland neighborhoods.

The Cleveland Climate Action Fund promotes and funds local carbon mitigation projects that foster economic development, social well-being, and environmental stewardship in our local communities.
