Announcing a New Crowdfunding Challenge!

iobyccaf2In partnership with ioby, the Cleveland Climate Action Fund (CCAF) has launched a new crowdfunding challenge. The CCAF and ioby want to hear your idea to make your neighborhood stronger and more sustainable.

We’re awarding up to $5,000 in matching funds to residents and community-based organizations for outstanding projects that take climate action. So for example, if your project raises $1,500 through crowdfunding and is chosen for a match, the CCAF will provide an additional $1,500 to help make your project a reality.
