Earth Day reminds many people to do something for the planet which is why we’re excited to announce the results of our Bay Area climate change research in time for this important event.
We surveyed 97 Bay Area climate change experts who identified 14 top nonprofits working in the San Francisco Bay Area to address climate change. You will find a few familiar names from our national climate change Expert Fund. All of these nonprofits have a local presence and some even have a global reach.
These organizations include associations, advocacy groups focused on transportation, research organizations, grassroots organizers, policy focused organizations, open space advocates, organizations promoting clean energy solutions, environmental health justice organizations, and more.
Here are the results:
