CCAF workshopsEncourage. Engage. Educate.

Through innovative workshops and grant opportunities community leaders learn how to take climate action in their own neighborhoods.

  • Do you have an idea that would improve your community and the environment?
  • Would you like to help neighbors save money on your electric, gas, and water bills?
  • Have you ever wondered how people and the environment affect one another?

If you answered “Yes!” then please join our partner Indigo Bishop at for free workshops to help you develop and fundraise for your projects.
