Their motto is 'Reduce what you can, offset what you can't!'
What They Do:
Carbonfund.org supports renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects globally that reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the threat of climate change. Carbonfund.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
How It Works:
We are all responsible for climate change and we all must be part of the solution. Carbonfund.org makes it simple for anyone, or any organization, to reduce and offset their carbon emissions.
A carbon offset represents a reduction in emissions somewhere else - like a renewable energy or a reforestation project - to balance out the emissions you cannot reduce.
Two Ways You Can Help:
1. Calculate Your Carbon Emissions and Contribute
Use the Carbon Calculator to figure out your carbon footprint or choose from one of their preset options. If you don’t see what you need, or have a special carbon footprint in mind (an organization, business, event), contact Carbonfund.org for more information. Contributions are tax-deductible.

2. Become carbon neutral
A carbon offset represents a reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) somewhere else, like a wind farm in Texas or a reforestation project in Nicaragua, to balance out the emissions you cannot reduce. By becoming carbon neutral today you are supporting clean technology and reduction projects that drive investment and innovation, and hasten our market transformation to a low carbon future.

What We Love:
There is even a way to offset your next event. Whether it be a wedding, tailgate, birthday, grand opening, or some other celebration, Carbonfund.org takes many aspects into consideration including: the number of guests and how they get to your event, the number of hotel nights used, and the food consumed.
