Over $5,000 raised toward our $7,500 match!

Give now to double your gift!

Thanks to over 25 donors who have helped us raise over $5,300 towards our $7,500 match to support our Sustainable Farms Campaign! You can help by donating now to help us hit our match. Funds raised go towards supporting our Sustainable Farms staff (meet Noa!), growing our coalition, lobbying in Olympia for the passage of SB 5947, and building broader awareness through events, like an upcoming presentation in Spokane at Forza Coffee at 5 pm on 10/24 and media (like The Washington Wire). Your gift goes directly to a lean, mean campaign for bipartisan legislation that will. cut. carbon. emissions.

More farms join our coalition!

Since our last newsletter, we have launched a sign-on letter for farms, environmental organizations, and other partners to sign in order to demonstrate the growing support for SB 5947 and climate-friendly farming practices broadly. Almost immediately, 7 farm or farming organizations joined us. We expect many more to join us in the coming months ahead of the next legislative session. You can help by sharing the attached letter with farms, farming and food organizations, environmental groups, and businesses so they can sign on. To officially sign on, please send an email to Noa@carbonwa.org demonstrating an appropriate officer of the organization approves of signing the letter and include a logo. (more…)

Kyle Murphy has been CarbonWA’s executive director since 2016 (and campaign co-chair before that). Kyle is now in his second year of law school and needs to focus on the demanding curriculum. Thank you, Kyle, for all you’ve done to help CarbonWA become a force for cleaning up Washington’s carbon emissions.

CarbonWA is now looking for a talented administrator, team leader, communicator, fundraiser, political strategist and more to take on the executive director role. This is your opportunity to help take CarbonWA to the next level of fundraising capability, volunteer mobilization, and legislative success.

Sound like you? We’d love to hear from you. Please read the job description, then send your cover letter and resume to jobs@carbonwa.org.

We’ll start reviewing applications on October 14.

Thanks for your interest!

Will You Invest in Climate-Friendly Farming Today?

CarbonWA’s campaign for climate-friendly farms and ranches needs your help!

Last legislative session SB 5947, a bill to support climate-friendly farming, moved through the Senate with bipartisan support led by Senators McCoy (D) and Schoesler (R). Senate Bill 5947 is the first step towards Carbon Washington’s goal of supporting our farming economy while maximizing the potential to use farm and prairie lands to fight climate change. You can learn more about the bill here and here. A CarbonWA supporter just offered to increase our matching amount from $5,000 to $7,500 to support this campaign. Please give today to help us take full advantage of the match!

A donor stepped up to increase the match from $5,000 to $7,500!

Can you give now?
